    Hello my TESOL colleagues,

    My name is Yiren Kong, and I am a doctoral candidate at 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 have international graduate students studying in the US, and their first language/primary language are not English, will you be willing to share a survey with them? The survey will only take 5 minutes to complete and does not elicit sensitive information.

    This study is approved by University at Buffalo's IRB review committee, and the consent information for participants can be found here. 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 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 will really appreciate it if you can help me with this! Thank you very much!
