Another opportunity for linguistic gratuity: this time one asking for help from writing teachers. You can help by answer a survey about your practices in the classroom. Here’s the email I received about this project this morning:
I’m a doctorate candidate at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) and I’m conducting an exploratory study to know more about the different technologies (beyond word processing) used in the writing classroom in different contexts. Towards that end, I have created an online survey and I’m kindly asking writing teachers on this list to take that survey to help me reach some concrete, reliable results. An IRB protocol for this study has been approved by IUP’s Review Board. The survey consists of four sections and it is estimated to take between 10 to 15 minutes to complete. Participation is anonymous unless the participant chooses to share name and/or contact information with the researcher for future possibilities of further similar research.
