Remote Teaching Experience: Participate in the Survey
Dear Fellow Applied Linguists,
I hope this announcement finds Everyone in good health and spirits. I would like to invite you to take part in research investigating how linguistics instructors and students have been coping with the transition to 𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐞 𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧. In particular, we hope to understand what circumstances, behaviours, attitudes and psychological traits have helped you deal with the shift, and what was difficult. You will likely find it easy to relate to many questions. The survey is anonymous and will solely serve scientific purposes. It should take around 25-40 minutes to complete; around 85% of the questions are of the quick multiple-choice type.
There are different versions of the questionnaire:
- for ɪɴsᴛʀᴜᴄᴛᴏʀs ᴀɴᴅ TAs ɪɴ Lɪɴɢᴜɪsᴛɪᴄs, Mᴏᴅᴇʀɴ Lᴀɴɢᴜᴀɢᴇs, Lᴀɴɢᴜᴀɢᴇ Tᴇᴀᴄʜɪɴɢ and related fields: https://www.surveygizmo.eu/s3/90232576/Linguistics-instructors
- for sᴛᴜᴅᴇɴᴛs ᴍᴀᴊᴏʀɪɴɢ ɪɴ Lɪɴɢᴜɪsᴛɪᴄs, Mᴏᴅᴇʀɴ Lᴀɴɢᴜᴀɢᴇs, Lᴀɴɢᴜᴀɢᴇ Tᴇᴀᴄʜɪɴɢ and related fields: https://www.surveygizmo.eu/s3/90232892/Linguistics-students
Thank you very much in advance for taking part! 🙏🏻 If you know instructors, teachers, colleagues, friends, or students who have been teaching or learning online this (past) semester and might want to participate, please feel free to share this announcement.
Stay safe and healthy!

I am aware of survey fatigue among the community, but hope our questionnaire is a bit different from others out there. Here are some respondents' comments:
"Thank you for sharing this survey! I enjoyed completing it, and thought it was one of the more comprehensive and compassionate surveys I’ve done during this time."
"Just completed this survey and I too would HIGHLY recommend that you spend some time completing it. It’s LONG as surveys go, so grab yourself a good cup of tea/coffee and some nibbles and find yourself a quiet space, it’s going take over half an hour, but I can safely say I have never felt that a survey could be life affirming but this is! It actually made me feel better. It’s like your own personal therapist at these difficult times. Thank you! Well done."
"I was able to relate all the questions to my experiences. I appreciated that the survey seemed to focus on the educator as a whole person rather than just a 'provider of lessons and materials'."
"This was kind of cathartic for me."
