Earlier this week, I wrote to QTU members about the workload research project the Union is supporting and which many of our elected branch delegates have already put their hand up to participate in.
The biggest phase of the research is about to begin, and you have been selected as one of the 10,000 QTU members we would like to take part. The feedback from our branch delegates is that participation in the research is easy. I urge you to join us for the next phase.
- downloading the digital app onto your Apple or Android phone or device, and giving consent to the collection of your data through the app (takes about one minute),
- providing some general non-identifying details about yourself and your school in the app – this will be once only (about one minute),
- completing a time use diary for a 30-minute block of time and responding to some prompt questions at the start and end of the day – done across three days over a two-week period (about five mins each day)
