Research Study Call for Participants

Text: Focus Groups Participants Needed! Image: Two cartoon heads with visible brains turned towards each other, talking.

We are recruiting Champlain College Online students and faculty for online, asynchronous focus groups on communication from and with the library. Participation in a focus group will take approximately 1 hour of time, broken up over several days. Focus groups will take place on a rolling basis between October 29 and November 16. Participants will be compensated in the form of a $10 Amazon gift card once the focus group study period is complete.

Prospective participants will be enrolled in focus groups on a first come, first serve basis. In the event that more individuals are interested in participating in the focus group than there are spots in focus groups, then those participants who are not enrolled will be added to a waiting list. Eligible participants will either be enrolled in or teaching a Champlain Online course in one of the Fall terms/semesters.

If you are interested in enrolling as a focus group participant in this research study, please contact Nick Faulk and Emily Crist, co-principal investigators, at by November 8.
