RESEARCH PARTICIPATION OPPORTUNITY
In the 21st Century the teaching profession has become characterised by significant pressures upon teachers. The impacts of these pressures are not yet adequately understood. We are looking for registered teachers for a study called the Emotional Experiences of Australian Teachers, and we would like to interview teachers as a part of our research. The study aims to provide insights that inform teacher education as well as policy in the teaching profession. For more information contact Patrick Danaher from USQ via email or on 0405 636 168.
