The Australian Council of TESOL Associations (ACTA) is seeking comprehensive data on the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on English language teachers of migrants, refugees and international students in the post-school sector. The results will be used in our advocacy to Government, the Opposition and other Parties/politicians and organisations (e.g. unions, ethnic associations). To see ACTA submissions, go to: http://www.tesol.org.au/
If you have taught or managed post-school EAL programs from any period that spans or began from the beginning of 2020 to now, we want to hear from you. Your responses will be totally confidential -- you cannot be personally identified by ACTA, those analysing the responses or anyone else.

The survey should take about 20 minutes depending on the length of your comments. The main sections ask about:
  • Your teaching situation
  • Teaching remotely - effects on teaching and for students
  • General issues - the future, ACTA policies, demographics. 

How the survey works
  • *  = we need this answer please. If you don't answer, you'll be returned to that question at the end of that section. 
  • To move to the next question, scroll down or click on OK. (The OK button stops the survey from jumping to the next question if you’re using the Comment box.)
  • When you click NEXT, your answers are saved and you are moved to the next part of the survey. NB: if you click on PREV or EXIT before clicking NEXT, your answers in that section will be lost.
  • To return to any sections you’ve done to change or review them, scroll down to the next PREV button, then click on PREV until you get back to the section you want.
  • To take a break & exit the survey before you’ve completed it, and then come back later:
    • close the link (the x tab at the top of your screen)
    • when you want to return, use the same browser, e.g. Chrome, and the same computer, and click on the link you first used to access this survey (it will be on the ACTA website or in an email you received)  – that link should take you back to where you were when you logged out.
If you have any questions about this survey, please contact president@atesolact.org.au

With warm thanks for your time and assistance.
