Participants Sought for Research Study on UEB

UEB in Simbraille
Dear Colleagues,
 
Dr. Sunggye Hong, Dr. L. Penny Rosenblum, and Mrs. Amy Campbell are conducting a research study to examine the experiences of teachers of students with visual impairments (TVIs) and university instructors of braille courses with the Unified English Braille (UEB) code.  Individuals in the United States who are teachers of students with visual impairments or university instructors teaching braille courses are invited to complete a 20-30 minute on-line survey.  The purpose of the study is learn about how TVIs and university instructors have learned about UEB, have implemented UEB, and have been involved in their state's planning of UEB implementation. Even if you currently do not have a student who is using UEB, we would still like to learn about your experiences and beliefs. There is no risk for participation in this study, nor will any participant be financially compensated for his/her  participation. To participate in this study please follow the links below:
