Narratives of Asian women migrant teachers in Dubai: exploring the challenges of teaching in a contrasting pedagogical and cultural context

How to cite this Dataset


This dataset contains twenty semi-structured interviews with ten early years teachers in Dubai. They were all migrant teachers originally from either Philippines, Pakistan, India or Sri Lanka. Each teacher was interviewed twice, using a semi-structured format allowing for differences and similarities in their experiences to be explored. The interviews lasted between 50 minutes and 1 hour 20 minutes. The interviews were conducted in English, recorded using Otter and transcribed by the researcher.

The data was collected as the research for a thesis that explored the professional journeys of Asian women migrant teachers when they relocate to teach in the early years sector in Dubai.
