CALL FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD TEACHER/EDUCATOR PARTICIPANTS
Are you an early childhood teacher/educator working in a multicultural setting in the greater Melbourne area?
Melbourne Graduate School of Education researchers Dr Sonja Arndt and Dr Clare Bartholomaeus are seeking participants for a research project investigating early childhood teachers’/educators' identity and belonging. The aim of the project is to strengthen intercultural understandings and practices in early childhood education, with a particular focus on teachers’/educators' cultural identity. This includes working with early childhood teachers/educators to draft a framework for culturally relevant practices in ECE.

The study aims to consider:
All focus groups and interviews will be conducted via Zoom. These will be audio recorded and transcribed by the researchers. As a participant you will be able to check your transcripts and individual data. Outputs from the research will not include any information which is likely to identify you or any of the other participants. Each participant will be asked to select a pseudonym (another name) to be used in all reporting. While every effort will be made to ensure confidentiality, it cannot be guaranteed as you will be participating in focus groups, participants will be visible to one another and you will know what each person said.
If you would like more information about the study, please contact Dr Sonja Arndt (Responsible Researcher) firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for taking the time to consider our invitation to this project.
