Invitation to participate in a survey on the impact of COVID-19 on Science teaching

You are invited to participate in a national study on the impact of COVID-19 school closures on learning, teaching and assessment in science at primary and post-primary level in Ireland. This study is being carried out by Dr. Ruth Chadwick and Dr. Eilish McLoughlin from CASTeL at Dublin City University. This study focuses on teaching, learning and assessment in science during the COVID-19 crisis in the months of September to December 2020. 

Who can take part?

We are inviting primary and post-primary teachers in Ireland, to discuss their experiences of teaching science during the COVID-19 crisis. You are asked to complete a short online questionnaire which will take around ten minutes.
