How are educators adapting to the challenges of COVID-19?

COVID-19 has changed the way we work, live, and learn. Most educational institutions have moved to some type of alternative education provision.  Research is required to better understand how these unprecedented challenges and ways of working affect educators and their vital work.

The effects on educators are being investigated by Associate Professor Petrea Redmond and colleagues at the University of Southern Queensland, Australia.

Educators around the world are completing an online survey for this research. The survey includes educators working in a wide range of educational sectors: Early Childhood, K – 12, Higher Education, Vocational Education and workplace trainers.

The survey takes, on average, approximately 5 minutes. If you are willing to contribute, here is the link: https://tinyurl.com/y73yj5fe

“We need evidence to understand educators’ experiences, and to inform educational policies and workplace practices”, says Associate Professor Petrea Redmond

A snowballing technique is being used to gather more participants, so feel free to pass on the link to colleagues or your professional networks.

This research project has ethical approval from the University of Southern Queensland (Human Research Ethics Approval Number – H20REA103).

    Cannot complete as an early years educator, (even tho it says it includes early childhood) as we have not been teaching remotely so the set of questions relating to this cannot be answered.
