Introduction to Research Methods
The ongoing pandemic has forced countries’ education systems to continue to operate in a fragile and uncertain environment. Given the limited existing literature regarding the pandemic’s impact on the Quality of life (QoL) for teachers, this study aims to bridge the gap and provide a detailed analysis of how the extent of providing online courses and time to transition online during the pandemic could impact a tertiary educator’s QoL. The factors defining the dependent variable, QoL, were derived from past studies and made applicable within the confines of our research. The independent variables are the amount of time spent working online, notice to transition online, and various control variables. The study will utilize cross-sectional data collated by conducting convenience and volunteer sampling surveys with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) faculty in campuses around the world. The data will be analyzed through regression analysis and ANOVA test. The findings of the study will aid in the development of government and educational policies to ensure the future sustainability of the education workforce in the unknown endemic landscape.
