4.  CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: BRIEF SURVEY ON RAPID TRANSITION TO ONLINE TEACHING

As we are at a unique time in higher education, we are hoping to capture this experience in a research study.

We are asking individuals in the engineering community who are experiencing a transition to online teaching to participate in an online survey and answer a short prompt. The survey will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. Answers will remain completely confidential and be deidentified prior to dissemination.

Please click the link below for more information, including informed consent, and to begin the survey:

We also ask that you share this survey with others as appropriate.

For questions, please contact PIs Ryan Snyder (rcs048@bucknell.edu), Kaela Martin (kaela.martin@erau.edu) or Elif Miskioglu (elif.miskioglu@bucknell.edu). Please forgive duplicate postings as we try to reach our target audiences.
