    Hello my TESOL colleagues,

    My name is Yiren Kong, and I am a doctoral candidate at the Department of Learning and Instruction at University at Buffalo. I am working on my dissertation which is about international graduate students' perception of reading-on-screen and reading-on-paper. If you know any international graduate students studying in the US (or graduated within one year) and their first language/primary language is not English, will you be willing to share a survey with them? The anonymous survey will only take 5 minutes to complete and does not elicit sensitive information.

    This study is approved by the University at Buffalo's IRB review committee. If your students are interested, here is the 
    survey. If the shortcut does not work, copy and paste the link below to the address bar.

    After the survey, the student might be invited to follow-up online interviews (private and confidential) on the same topic. The interviews will be audio-recorded, and will not be shared with anyone else. The selected interviewees' time will be compensated accordingly. They may choose to accept or reject the follow-up interviews. More information will be shared with them if they are selected.

    I appreciate your attention on this! Thank you in advance for sharing my survey! If you have any questions about the survey or this study. Please do not hesitate to contact me at yirenkon@buffalo.edu.

    Warm regards,
    Yiren
