ELT Wellbeing & Commitment
Research Topic: Wellbeing and commitment to English language teaching (ELT)
Participant Sample: Expatriate English language teachers

About the Study
This survey will ask how you feel about working as an English teacher and how you feel about your current workplace. The purpose is to better understand how and why people commitment to the profession of ELT.

Who may participate?
We are seeking participants who are:
1. Citizens of countries where English is an official language,
2. who were educated in countries where English is an official language,
3. who are native-speakers of English, and
4. who are employed as an English teacher, co-teacher, instructor, lecturer, or professor in a foreign country. This criterion also includes those who are teaching content-based courses or content and learning-integrated courses in English.
If you fit these criteria, we eagerly welcome you to join the study.

What will you be asked to do?
You will be asked to fill out a survey (40 items) and some demographic information. It should only take about 10 minutes of your time.

What are the benefits?
Your participation will help lead to a better understanding about the wellbeing and commitment of expat English teachers.

Will my participation be anonymous and confidential?
Yes. Your responses will be confidential and anonymous. Even though email (or a web link) was used for the invitation, your name and metadata (email address, ISP, etc.) will remain hidden to the researchers. After submitting the survey, your responses will upload to a Google Drive account which only the researchers have access to.

What if I have further questions?
If you have any questions about this project, either now or in the future, please don’t hesitate to contact one of us.
