Are you teaching on contract? Please participate in a national survey on Contract Academic Staff.
The Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) is undertaking the first ever national study on the experiences of contract academic staff. If you taught in the 2016-2017 academic year in a non-permanent position, please fill out the survey by November 1. The survey will gather data on a range of objective qualities of contract positions, such as wages, hours of work, office space, and teaching loads, as well as on the experiences of a contract academic.
The survey consists of approximately 60 questions—some multiple-choice and some open-ended—that should take approximately 30 minutes to complete. It will be open until November 1, 2017. The survey can be accessed at survey.caut.ca.
Additional information on the study, data protection, confidentiality, and risks of participation is accessible via a linked Informed Consent document in the survey’s introduction.
If you have any questions, please contact the lead researcher, Dr. Karen Foster at 902-494-6751 or Karen.Foster@dal.ca (email is most reliable).
This research will help strengthen local and collective efforts to win fairness for Contract Academic Staff.
