Research Goals:

The aims of our research are to: (a) understand how primary grade teachers, in settlement and non-settlement schools, define their own well-being, (b) involve teachers in defining critical constructs that should be measured, and (c) co-develop and validate a contextually-appropriate tool.

Embedded Research Translation Product:

  1. a non-technical summary brief on the ways in which teachers define their own well- being, 
  2. a validated teacher well-being survey for use in Uganda, 
  3. a technical report of the validity and reliability of the survey, 
  4. and a webinar on the process-learnings from the research that could be applied to other contexts.
