COVID-19: Supporting Teachers in Times of Change

Results of a national teacher survey on resilience and burnout during the coronavirus pandemic highlights how teachers cope with stress and change

COVID-19 is here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future. Researchers from the  University of Winnipeg surveyed over 1,600 teachers across the country to explore which conditions, in terms of resources and job demands, allow teachers to remain resilient when teaching during times of disruption and change such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

Note: These findings are part of a survey series on supporting teachers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Survey responses were first collected in April/May 2020, when teachers had just begun to teach remotely. The survey was administered a second time in mid-June 2020. It will be administered once more in September 2020, when students (in most provinces) are physically back in school practicing safety protocols related to COVID-19. Stay tuned for updates on this survey series.
