Are you in Control? Job-Crafting Research Project
Few professions attract the same level of public commentary as teaching.
The extent to which any worker has control over their own work, and is able to create their own sense of its meaning and significance, is realised through a process known as ‘job crafting’.
There are three key elements in job crafting for teachers:
- The actual tasks that must be, and are, performed relating to teaching and learning;
- The nature and focus of interactions with other individuals (students and fellow staff) and;
- The orientation to tasks and re-evaluation of these when challenged by change.
Notably, unrealistic expectations about what can be achieved in the absence of adequate funding and resourcing constrains the work of teachers.
IEUA-QNT members have an opportunity to contribute to research that examines teachers’ experiences of job crafting by participating in a survey conducted by research staff from the School of Applied Psychology at Griffith University.
Participants will be asked to complete a brief questionnaire at two time points, seven days apart. Participation in the survey should take approximately 5-10 minutes per session and no identifying information will be collected.
