    Project Launchpad, a research team at the University of Colorado Boulder, is conducting a study to understand and improve teaching in college math courses and to learn about the careers of two-year college (2YC) instructors. We seek your help to provide data about your teaching work!

    We invite 2YC instructors to complete a brief survey about your professional career and your involvement in teaching-focused professional development. The survey asks about the classes you teach, your teaching style, and your academic and scholarly activities. There are two versions of the survey: one for early-career 2YC instructors and one for experienced 2YC instructors, and the survey website will help you identify which survey is appropriate for you.

    The research is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation and is being conducted in cooperation with AMATYC and the Mathematical Association of America (MAA).

    Participants who complete the survey will receive a $25 online gift certificate. All information you provide is confidential. 

    Follow the URL to select and take the survey:  https://tinyurl.com/2YCmathSurvey 

    If you have any questions, please message me in my.amatyc or contact Tim Weston at westont@colorado.edu .

    Thank you for considering our study! We greatly appreciate your help. Feel free to share this invitation with your 2YC colleagues.
