Quick survey – all Teachers/Faculty/Educators in all settings – please help!

I sent this survey out on Friday, and was so excited to send it out that I mistakenly sent a link that didn’t seem to work properly. Here is the correct link. Thanks Dad for letting me know! I don’t know what I would do without my Mom and Dad!!! I promise it will only take 5 minutes or less to complete and we would really appreciate your feedback on teaching in any setting in 2020! Here is a picture of Mom and Dad when things were safer at a family and community event my students and I were hosting at Neumann University.

Please help us by completing and sharing this short survey. The survey should only take about 5 minutes to complete.

We are collecting research to help us provide resources and tools that are practical, quick, and easy to implement with the goal of increasing student engagement and learning.

We want to know what is working and what are some challenges that others are facing during this time.

This survey applies to anyone who is teaching in 2020 from early childhood through higher education.
