Dear Counselor Trainees,
My name is Dan Li. I am an assistant professor of counseling in the Department of Counseling and Higher Education at the University of North Texas. I am inviting you to participate in my research study regarding predictors of counselor trainees’ satisfaction with online learning (IRB-20-421). Approximately 200 people will participate in this study at the University of North Texas.
If you (a) are at least 18 years of age; (b) are currently enrolled in a counseling program at either master's or doctoral level in the United States; and (c) had experience taking an online counseling course in the past (including your experience with the transition to a remote learning mode after the COVID-19 pandemic) or are currently taking an online counseling course, you are eligible to participate in the study. Notably, an online course is defined as 50% or more of a course’s curriculum is offered online. Participants who completed the study (an online survey taking approximately 20 minutes) have the option to enter a drawing to win one of the 10 Amazon eGift cards ($10 each) as research compensation. Please also consider forwarding this e-mail to anyone who may be eligible to participate in the study.
