The Shadow Education SIG events on 2nd and 9th of February

The Shadow Education SIG held two events on 2nd and 9th of February. MED students from HKU: Jiali Chen, Robert Liu, Mako Kato and Ming Yue NG made the presentations of their research projects on mainland China, Hong Kong SAR, and Japan. Thank you to many guests who joined from all over the world.

Shadow Education in Africa

CERC is pleased to announce the latest volume in its Monographs series. It is written by Mark Bray  and entitled Shadow Education in Africa: Private Supplementary Tutoring and its Policy Implications. It can be downloaded free of charge here, or purchased in paper copy for HK$100 or US$16 including postage.

The book builds on a Working Paper for UNESCO’s  Global Education Monitoring Report, which for the 2021/22 edition focuses on  non-state actors in education. Shadow education is recognized as a component on non-state activity of growing scale and significance.

The book addresses both Sub-Saharan and North Africa, and draws many lessons from comparative analysis. It is the first comprehensive work on shadow education in Africa, and as such is a significant milestone in the field. Particular attention is paid to regular teachers who also provide tutoring, and to private-sector enterprises.

Other CERC books about shadow education focus on:

Greetings!

 

As 2020 comes to a close, it is good to look beyond the challenges it brought and marvel in the blessings that we share. Supporting each other, being there for one another, and just making the best of extremely trying circumstances – that is what made this year special. As Christmas approaches, I wish peace, love and joy all of you who celebrate. May 2021 bring all of us hope for a better future, as we navigate it together.

 

For our current students, digital learning will most likely continue in the second semester. The twenty-five students who joined our program last September have been living through a very unique experience in the history of M.Ed. (Higher Education), with the majority of their postgraduate studies taking place in cyberspace. I appreciate the effort that went into adapting to the changes in your learning environment, managing changes in your own personal lives, and still continuing to be exceptional in your academic performance. Thank you for your enthusiasm, diligence, resilience, and support of one another. As the Higher Education program enters its tenth anniversary year, it is clear that our next student cohorts will need to be online more than their predecessors, but – we hope – not as much as the 2020-21 cohort. As we wait for vaccines to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic, we are hopeful that this year’s cohort will have more opportunities to meet and learn with each other in person. Face-to-face exchange will be prioritized over virtual experiences to the greatest extent possible, while still focusing on keeping everyone healthy and safe.

 

Our program has made a new call for admissions recently, and we encourage you to share this news widely, encouraging  prospective candidates to become part of our global network. Currently, we have more than 200 graduates across the globe, and many have been making significant progress professionally as university and college administrators, faculty members, researchers, teachers, consultants, etc. Hearing about their accomplishments and aspirations is always rewarding, and motivates all of us – both faculty and students – to work harder and be the best that we can be.

 

As the festive time approaches and you may have some time to rummage around the academic collections in the field, we encourage you to read from our most recent research portfolio, and certainly use the opportunity to reconnect with your teachers and mentors. Here is a list of last year’s publications from the teachers and peers in our network:
