Sustainability in schools: survey
Our union is assisting the Australian Education for Sustainability Alliance (AESA) and the Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF) with a research project regarding the integration of sustainability into teaching practices in schools.
We are encouraging teachers who currently integrate sustainability into their school teaching practices to take part in a national online survey.
The primary objective of the survey is to evaluate the efficacy of a variety of online and offline resources designed to assist teachers with integrating sustainability into their teaching practices.
Results from this survey will be used to assist the ACF with the development of suitable resources to assist non-engaged teachers with integrating sustainability into their teaching practices.
The survey will take less than 15 minutes to complete. Members are asked to complete the survey by Friday 15 May.
What if your school is not currently integrating sustainability into teaching practices?
Teachers who do not currently implement sustainability into their school teaching practices are invited to take part in a focus group being held in Brisbane on Thursday 30 April.
The focus group will last for approximately one and a half hours and be held at 5pm at Queensland Teachers Union (Ground Floor of the Teachers’ Building, 21 Graham St, Milton).
Those taking part in the focus groups will each receive $80 as a thank-you for taking part.
The views and opinions of our members are very important and will be used to help develop strategies to help schools better integrate sustainability into teaching practices and the school curriculum.
The research is being conducted by an independent Market Research agency, Lonergan Research, who will be in touch in due course if you qualify to take part.
