    Surveying early childhood teacher beliefs

    Dear Early Years Teachers,

    We are writing to seek your participation in a major international education research project.

    A team of researchers from Queensland University of Technology, Australia, and Gothenburg University, Sweden, are undertaking a study titled: Learning about social and moral values for active citizenship. There is currently little known about how early years teacherís beliefs about teaching and learning impact on childrenís social and moral learning. As an early childhood teacher, you have been selected to take part in this international study.

    In a few days, we will email you a link to a quick, 10-15 minute questionnaire. We would be honoured if you would take a few minutes to answer the questions in the survey. Your answers will give us crucial insight into how early years teacherís beliefs about teaching and learning impact on childrenís social and moral learning and inform understanding of how best to promote effective teaching practices for active citizenship in the early years.

    We will not ask for any personal information, and all answers will be completely confidential. Your responses will be gathered by an independent researcher, and we will not have access to individual responses.

    Your feedback is very important to us. Your responses will help us understand how teacherís beliefs about teaching and learning impact of childrenís social and moral learning and may help to promote effective teaching practices.

    We will email you again in a few days with a link to the survey.

    Yours sincerely,
    Dr Joanne Brownlee, Dr Susan Walker,
    Dr Joanne Ailwood, Dr Gillian Boulton-Lewis
    Dr Eva Johansson
