Shadow Education and Its Impact on Teaching, Learning, and Development

Rationale

Shadow education has expanded rapidly and gained increasing scholarly attention worldwide in the past three decades. It is used as a metaphor for private supplementary tutoring because much tutoring imitates mainstream education: as the curriculum changes in the mainstream, so it changes in the shadow. Also, when the school sector expands, the shadow sector follows. Shadow education has a significant impact on various stakeholders in the education sector including students, tutors, parents, teachers and school leaders. So far, much research has focused on the broader perspectives of shadow education, such as the prevalence, nature and characteristics of private supplementary tutoring at different levels of schooling, as well as its impact on educational inequality. The more micro dimensions such as the impact of shadow education on teaching practices, student learning, and developmental outcomes have received limited attention. In this regard, this special issue aims to address these relatively under-researched aspects of shadow education.

We welcome empirical, review, methods, and conceptual articles (7,000 words maximum) that provide innovative insights into impact of shadow education on teaching, learning and/or development. The Special Issue is inclusive of various stakeholders and aims to represent research conducted in diverse socio-cultural contexts. Interested authors must submit their expression of interest in the form of an abstract of 400 to 500 words, before July 15, 2022. The editors will notify authors about the preliminary acceptance of their proposals by August 1, 2022.

Topics of interest

Potential topics may include but are not limited to:

  • Learning experiences of students, including gifted and those with special educational needs, in shadow education, compared with those in mainstream schools.
  • Tutors’ instructional and assessment practices, including career and guidance counseling.
  • Curriculum design and implementation in shadow education (e.g., languages, mathematics, sciences, STEM, humanities, businesses, arts), including new and innovative teaching concepts.
  • Impact of shadow education on academic and non-academic developmental outcomes throughout the life span (e.g., learning motivation, learner agency, learning style, self-efficacy, resilience, self-regulation).
  • The impact of the emerging global trends (e.g., online teaching due to COVID-19, home schooling, initiatives of self-directed learning and autonomous learning) on the development of shadow education and the identities of its stakeholders.
  • The short-term and possible long-term effects of shadow education on the development of various stakeholders such as students, tutors, and parents (e.g., students’ generic skills such as self-regulated learning capacity and critical thinking, tutors’ identity, parenting styles).
