Leveraging the Potential of Personal Learning Networks for Teacher Professional Development - Doctoral Research Study

Dear Fellow Educators:    

My name is Katherine Maloney and I am a doctoral student at the University of Phoenix.  My dissertation focuses on how educators are using their Personal Learning Networks (PLNs) for professional development purposes.  I need your help.  

Please click on this link if you are able to spare 5 minutes or less of your time to complete a short survey containing 13 questions concerning your use of a PLN for professional development purposes.  The survey should no longer than 5 minutes to complete and your responses will be confidential.  At the end of the survey you will be asked whether you are willing to participate in the second phase of the study, which consists of Skype interviews with active and engaged PLN-users.  Please provide me with your email address if you are willing to be interviewed. 

Thank you so much in advance for your consideration.  I truly appreciate your time and hope that this study will provide valuable insights to leaders and practitioners concerning how to leverage the potential of PLNs as a form of teacher professional development.    

Sincerely,

Katherine Maloney

Thank you so, so much to those who have already responded.

Please, to the rest of the members of The Educator's PLN community, your help would be much appreciated.  If you can spare just five minutes of your time to complete my survey, I would be ever so grateful!

Good work! I just completed your survey. I also recruited fellow educators on different professional networks. I think this is a good topic and I will be happy to participate. I clicked yes that I will be interviewed. I don't know how your lick has been in getting participants from different PLNs, my was not very good. Hope you have a better luck getting participants.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

"My preference is this website is best. Twitter is used for social purpose and EDUPLN is used for professional discussion which you cannot discuss on social platforms."
