  • Request from a Professor in Indiana - This email is being sent to you on behalf of Anne Leftwich from the Instructional Systems Technology Department in the School of Education at Indiana University-Bloomington:

    We are conducting a national study to investigate teachers’ and school technology leaders’ perceptions of the most effective technology-related professional development experiences.  We would like to share these results with school districts and universities to help them offer more relevant technology-related professional development experiences. We value your opinion as you have likely seen many of these experiences (good, bad, and ugly). 

    Specifically, we are interested in hearing about your own professional development (PD) needs for technology integration and your perceptions of effective technology professional development programs. We have created a short survey (5-10 minutes) to capture your perceptions and experiences. 

    Examining Teacher Professional Development for Technology Integration Survey: http://goo.gl/7baL7j

    For your reference, the details about the study can be found in the Study Information Sheet found here: https://iu.box.com/ist-technology-integration.
