Exploring the lived experiences of children in Irish primary schools
What is it like to participate in CSL?
We’re excited to work together with teachers, early years educators, and principals in their primary schools and early years settings to gain important knowledge and information from multiple perspectives on education in Ireland.
If you are a teacher we will ask you to tell us about your classroom and teaching practices. If you are a principal, we will be asking you about school leadership and school practices.
The CSL study uses a cross- sequential longitudinal design, producing a rich
set of mixed methods data. This is generated through a nationally representative quantitative study and in-depth case studies of a sub-sample of schools.
The Children’s School Lives Study has been approved by the University College Dublin Human Research Ethics Committee.
International experts in specific areas of research design and researching with children are involved in advising the CSL team on their study methods.
