Online Teacher Survey: Follow-Up Posting

This is being posted on behalf of a doctoral student that contacted Kathryn Kennedy of iNACOL.

Last week I posted to this forum asking you to respond to a short survey about your experience and training as a K-12 online teacher. Your participation in this study is important and will help in describing the current population of K-12 online teachers and how they were trained for this environment.

This brief survey should only take you 15 minutes to complete. If you have already completed the survey, I appreciate your participation. If you have not yet responded to the survey, I encourage you to complete the survey today.

Please click on the link below to access the survey.

I appreciate your time and consideration in completing the survey. Information gathered from online teachers like you is crucial to improve ways in preparing future distance educators.

Many thanks,

Online Teacher Survey: Invitation With Link Posting

This is being posted on behalf of a doctoral student that contacted Kathryn Kennedy of iNACOL.

I would like to ask for your participation in a survey on K-12 online teachers in the United States that I am conducting for my dissertation.

As mentioned in my previous post, members of iNACOL are identified as being affiliated with U.S. virtual schools. If you are a K-12 online teacher (or can distribute this information to those that teach online) your participation would be most appreciated.

Your responses to this survey are very important. Information gathered will help capture an accurate representation of who is currently teaching online to K-12 students and will provide valuable information for both university teacher education programs and virtual schools.

This is a brief survey and should take you no more than 15 minutes to complete. Please click on the link below to begin the survey.

Survey Link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/onlineteachers

Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary and all of your responses will be kept strictly confidential. Your name will be removed from the list once you have completed the survey. Any reports of this data will not associate your responses with any personally identifiable information. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at Jean.Larson@asu.edu.

Thank you in advance for your help. Your responses are important in getting a true depiction of K-12 online teachers and how they were prepared to teach online.

Sincerely,

Online Teacher Survey: Pre-Notification Posting

This is being posted on behalf of a doctoral student that contacted Kathryn Kennedy of iNACOL.

My name is Jean Larson, and I am an Educational Technology doctoral student at Arizona State University. I am conducting research about K-12 online teachers in the United States for my dissertation study. Because very little is known regarding this population, this research seeks to provide a clearer picture of the background and training of those teaching online.

As a member of iNACOL, you are identified as being affiliated with a virtual school in the United States. In the next few days, I will be posting a link to a web-based survey on this General Forum. If you teach online, your response to this short survey would be greatly appreciated.

I am providing this information in advance so you will recognize the request in a few days when it is posted on the General Forum. Results from this important study will help to provide meaningful insight into the characteristics of K-12 online teachers and how they are prepared to teach online.

This study can only be successful with the generous help of people like you. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
