THE IMPACT OF THE PANDEMIC ON EDUCATION

2020-12-01
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a great impact on education. According to the data compiled by UNESCO, over one billion, or over 90% of all enrolled students globally have been affected. Students worldwide have lost an average of 60 days of instructions per student since February 2020. According to the UNESCO, over half of all the student population worldwide, were expected to start this academic year entirely through remote learning or, via a blended mix of remote and classroom learning, a fact that can affect both the quality and context of learning, and even make the students (or their parents) decide to leave the educational system altogether.

Of particular concern is the impact of the pandemic on various vulnerable populations such as the girls and young women living in countries that restrict female education, special needs students, and students with challenging economic resources and/or with limited access to technology. National, regional, and local government policymakers struggle to develop and implement an appropriate response to maintain the health and safety of students, teachers, and administrators that are consistent with the best practices prevalent considering the local conditions. However, the lack of an international consensus on important understandings associated with the pandemic has further complicated and compromised an effective global response.
 
The scholarly journal EDU REVIEW. International Education and Learning Review, invites professors, researchers, and educators at all levels of the educational enterprise to present papers related to current and planned research studies on the impact of the pandemic on education. The conference organizers invite papers and presentations that address various aspects address one or more of the following questions:
  • Reflections on what are the most effective pedagogical approaches that have been used during the pandemic?
  • What are the pedagogical challenges that have arisen and how have they been addressed?
  • What is the impact of these pedagogical practices on vulnerable populations? and how have these challenges been addressed?
  • What is the impact of the changes in the educational program as a result of the pandemic on various student outcomes?
  • What are the challenges associated with policies and procedures associated with the implementation of a safe and healthy educational environment?
  • What has been the impact of the pandemic faced by private educational institutions as compared to the public institutions?
  • What has been the impact of the pandemic and the educational response on the social and emotional learning of students

This Call For Papers is an important and historically unique opportunity for professors, researchers, and administrators, to present current and emerging knowledge related to the extraordinary situation, in which Covid-19 has engulfed all dimensions of human existence and society.
