The East Coast project
The East Coast project has been funded by the La Trobe Transforming Human Society Research Focus Area. It aims to investigate teachers' experiences of being bullied by students and/or their parents in schools Victoria, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory or New South Wales. It aims to answer the following questions
Our previous nationwide study into the incidence and impact of teacher targeted bullying and harassment showed that teachers in these states were very concerned about teacher targeted bullying and harassment by students and their parents. We expect to conduct a West Coast study in the near future.
To participate you must be a registered primary or secondary teacher (or have been registered within the last two years) in either Victoria, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory or New South Wales, and aged between 21 and 70.
How can I take part in this study?
You can participate either by taking a short 10 minute survey and/or participating in an interview; it is up to you and what you are comfortable sharing.
Where can I read about the findings
The information you provide as part of this investigation will be used in publications including journal articles, book and book chapters, conference presentations or reports. You will find a list of publications below as they become available (some material such as journal articles and book chapters may require access through a library data base).
