2019-05-29



Out-of-school education (also known as “shadow education”) is not only the focus of our current social attention, but also one of the international academic cutting-edge topics. ICI promptly seized the opportunity to start the research on out-of-school education. The research group is composed of Dr. Zhang Wei, Dr. Liu Junyan and Professor Mark Bray, an international authority on out-of-school education and an outstanding professor in the Department of Education, ECNU. Recently, the group not only completed the first special issue on the theme of out-of-school education in English, but also was invited to attend the 63rd International Conference on Comparative Education (CIES). The group shared the latest research results of out-of-school education as well as the wisdom and experience of out-of-school education in China with many well-known experts and scholars in the field.
