My name is Michelle Wilbern and I am a research assistant working with Dr. Debra Sprague at George Mason University. We are conducting a research study about the transition to online learning from face to face instruction during the coronavirus pandemic.  I am emailing to ask if you would like to take about 10-15 minutes to complete a survey for this research project. You must be 18 years of age or older and a student enrolled in a college course during the Spring 2020 semester in order to participate in this study. Participation is completely voluntary, and your answers will be anonymous. If you are interested, please click on the link for the survey:
