Mini #LitterLessCampaign - Reduce Environmental Pollution
Kia ora koutou ngā kaiako | Dear teachers,
You are invited to share your insights and recommendations as part of a Massey University student’s research project. The study explores New Zealand primary school teachers’ training and experiences with respect to teaching children with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, epilepsy, and cancer.
The first phase of this study involves an online questionnaire, which is open to all New Zealand registered or provisionally registered teachers working in the primary school sector (i.e., teachers of Y1–6 students).
Chronic medical conditions can disrupt a child's learning journey and these students may be at risk of social, emotional, and behavioural maladjustment and academic under-achievement. It is important to ensure that teachers are well prepared and supported to work with these children. It is intended that the results of this study will contribute to an understanding of the training, strategies, and supports that can help teachers to ensure a positive learning experience for children with chronic health needs.
If you are interested in participating, please follow the link below to access a detailed information sheet and the questionnaire itself: www.surveymonkey.com/r/2KZBD6F
This research is being conducted under the supervision of Associate Professor Roseanna Bourke (email@example.com) and Mr Terence Edwards (firstname.lastname@example.org) as part of the requirements of a Master of Educational Psychology with Massey University. If you have questions about this project, please do not hesitate to contact me or one of the research supervisors.
Nāku noa atu | Yours sincerely,
Nicola Adams - Primary Researcher
