Vance recently responded to the following call from Mika Mokko, Department Of Literacy, Culture, And Language Education, Associate Instructor and PhD Candidate, Indiana University. Her dissertation study is a case study research involving two semi-structured interviews, the first one between 60-90 minutes in length and the second one between 30-60 minutes in length, as well as observation of interactions online within the subject’s PLN.

I am a fifth year PhD candidate in the Department of Literacy, Culture, and Language Education at Indiana University looking for participants for my dissertation research. I would like to invite current ESL teachers who utilize a PLN (with a minimum of three tools such as Twitter, blogs, Nings, etc.) on a weekly basis for L2 professional development to participate in my study. This case study research aims at investigating the attitude, activity and influences of ESL teachers who have built and maintained successful PLNs to enhance their L2 professional development.

Mika asked those interested in participating to please fill out a short demographic survey: http://goo.gl/forms/MfYj23xbf3

Mika has graciously agreed that we can share this interview with the Learning2gether community.
