If you are a graduate teacher and are commencing work with DET for the first time in 2017 then this research project is for you!  

A study titled “Supporting the wellbeing and retention of beginning teachers” is being conducted by Professor Paula Brough from Griffith University. This study will inform DET of current trends amongst new educators and ultimately look at how the employer can better assist new educators to transition into working life.

Are you afraid to use Facebook?

Could you please do a 3-minute, anonymous survey on cyberbullying if you are a secondary teacher. The link is below.

I am doing a master degree in psychology (Educational and Developmental) and completing a thesis as part of the course. I’d like to know about secondary teachers being cyberbullied by students or parents, and how this affects their use of social media. Please note that this study has been approved by the QUT Human Research Ethics Committee (approval number 1500000889). The survey will be available until 28th February 2017. I really hope you can help me out

Many thanks for your consideration of this request.
