Research about the Emotional Experiences of Australian Teachers

In the 21st Century the teaching profession has become characterised by significant pressures upon teachers. The impacts of these pressures are not yet adequately understood. The study aims to provide insights that inform teacher education as well as policy in the teaching profession. Currently, not enough is understood about how to prepare teachers emotionally for the profession through formal teacher education. This project is being conducted in parallel with similar research in four other countries (Brazil, Chile, Ecuador and Spain), and will thus have international significance in developing an understanding of the emotional experiences of teaching.
