Investigating Literary Knowledge in the Making of English Teachers
Are you an English teacher? Are you interested in sharing your views about teaching English? Contribute to important national research by completing a short survey about your experience as an English teacher.
To complete the survey please click here.
English teachers in their first year of teaching in NSW, VIC, or WA are also sought to be interviewed for the project. The commitment is an interview once each year for the next three years.
Potential interviewees do not need to be in the same school for three years, though we would prefer any teachers with ‘temporary’ status to have the intention of at least seeking longer-term block periods in a few schools, as opposed to day-to-day casual relief in many different schools. Ultimately, we would like to interview a mix of teachers with permanent positions and those who have experience in more than one context through long-term block periods in schools. To be involved please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The ‘Investigating Literary Knowledge in the Making of English Teachers’ project aims to produce a new empirical study of the role of literary knowledge in the making of English teachers and will contribute to future planning for teachers, schools, and Government. The project team includes experienced researchers from the University of Melbourne, Western Sydney University, the University of Western Australia and Deakin University and is funded by an Australian Research Council Discovery Project grant (DP160101084).
