An Exploration of Faculty Members’ Student-centeredness in the Field of Instructional Design & Technology

Dear instructional design & technology colleagues, friends, and students,

I’m Michael Grant, a faculty member at the University of South Carolina, and I am conducting a research study titled, “An Exploration of Faculty Members¹ Student-centeredness in the Field of Instructional Design & Technology.”  This study is for **both faculty members and graduate students** in instructional design and technology (e.g., educational technology; technology integration; learning, design & technology; learning sciences; etc.).

The purpose of this study is to describe the extent to which higher education faculty members in instructional design and technology employ student-centered teaching methods and how they define student-centered teaching.

This study will take approximately 20 minutes of your time. You will be asked to complete an online survey about the pedagogical practices you or your professors implement.

If you are interested in participating, please continue to this site to read more details, give your consent to participate, and begin the survey.

If you have any specific questions about this study, please contact me at michaelmgrant [at] sc [dot] edu.

Thank you and I hope to work with you on this potentially beneficial study.

Take care,
