Invitation from Julie Lindsay to participate in her EdD research.

The working title of my doctorate is ‘Online global collaborative educators and pedagogical change’. The research design is in two parts, with Part 1 being an online survey open to any K-12 teacher in the world who has or is implementing online global collaboration.

Julie encourages you to read further, consider helping me by completing the survey, and spread this across your network to invite others to contribute as well.

Further information and the survey starts here: http://bit.ly/1UTTOTV

Please let me know if you have any questions at all.

Many thanks
