  • 1.  Final call: Request for research support

    Posted 13-04-2022 04:18 AM

    Hi all,

    I hope everyone is having a nice semester. My name is Matt Kessler, and I am a teacher and researcher at the University of South Florida. I am currently conducting a study in which I am attempting to understand the state of second language writing instruction in classrooms around the world.

    Therefore, I am looking for people who are currently teaching writing to second language learners, OR those who have previously taught writing (within the past 5 years). This includes people who have taught a dedicated writing course, or people who have taught writing as part of an integrated skills course.

    If you meet these requirements, I ask that you please consider taking a short online survey about your teaching practices. The survey takes ~10 minutes. If interested, here is the survey link along with more information about the study:

    Thank you for your consideration, (and thank you to those who have already participated!). Please let me know if you have any questions!
