  • who is certified to teach Algebra I or above, Chemistry, or Physics
  • or you are not certified in these courses, but you support students who take these courses
... then please consider participating in this important work.  The honorarium for about 75 minutes of your time will be a $150 Visa gift card.
 
The details are as follows:
 
When: Study sessions will take place between Monday, September 14th and Friday, September 18th, 2015.
 
Where:  From the comfort of your own home.  Please note: you will need access to a computer with an internet connection as well as a phone to communicate with the researcher during the study session. Headsets or speaker functions on the phone would be ideal.
 
Why:  Feedback from individuals who are actively instructing students with visual impairments is critical to the study.
