We have been contacted by friends at Communia about a new survey they recently launched at the beginning of May. For those not familiar with their work, Communia advocate for policies that expand the public domain and increase access to and reuse of culture and knowledge. The research is part of their campaign on Copyright For Education.
Their new survey is interested in the materials, tools, methods, obstacles, and problems encountered by school teachers (K12) with the shift to online learning, triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. Communia are carrying out their research in 8 countries: Poland, Greece, Portugal, Slovenia, UK, Czech Republic, Germany, and Italy, but they are particularly looking for more responses from UK school teachers.
Their goal is to reach 100 responses in each country. If you have any friends or contacts in UK schools then please do share this questionnaire with them. You may wish to share it via Twitter or to any Facebook groups you know are used by school teachers.
As of this week, Communia have just 15 responses from the UK and the closing date for the survey is 26th May 2021. We know there have been plenty of studies recently among UK teachers and they might be experiencing survey fatigue but it would be great to get some additional responses from UK teachers to gather a picture of their experiences in relation to copyright and access to digital resources for teaching.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide in sharing details of the survey.
