Call for Participation: Survey on Academic Library Employees Acting as Instructional Designers During COVID-19

(via Kristin Cole, Otterbein University)

I am conducting a survey on academic library employees and their work during the transition to online classes in Spring 2020 due to COVID-19. The purpose of this study is to determine the percentage of academic library employees who performed instructional design duties during this transition, which may include tasks such as training faculty to transition their courses to Blackboard, Canvas, or another LMS. I am looking for a wide range of responses from institutions of all types. Even if you think you did not perform instructional design duties during Spring 2020, please consider completing this survey.

To access the survey, please go here. Participation in the survey is voluntary and completely anonymous. There are no incentives or inducements for completing the survey. You may withdraw consent at any time by closing the survey.

If you have any questions about the study, please contact me, at cole1@otterbein.edu. This research has been approved by Otterbein University’s Institutional Review Board. The IRB, also, is able to answer questions regarding the survey, at IRB@Otterbein.edu.
