Dear Colleague,

You’re invited to participate in a research study about college-level world language faculty’s perceptions of Emergency Remote Language Teaching (ERLT) of undergraduates. ERLT is a temporary shift of instructional delivery in language education to an alternate delivery mode due to crisis circumstances such as those experienced during COVID-19. In this study, we are interested in knowing your perceptions of the value of online language teaching, your confidence for ERLT, and your students’ readiness for ERLT during the COVID-19 outbreak.

It will take no more than 20 minutes of your time to complete the online survey. Participants may enter to win one of five $20 Amazon Gift Cards when they complete the survey.

If you teach any language other than Mandarin Chinese, please fill out Survey A: by May 30;

If you teach Mandarin Chinese, please fill out Survey B: by May 30.

The first page of the survey is an Information Sheet with more details about this research.

Feel free to forward the message to any interested colleagues. Thank you!
