This call for responses was sent to InsideMGA by Dr. Chris Lawrence in the Department of Political Science:
I am a doctoral student at the University of Mississippi in the Higher Education Department. I am conducting research for my dissertation entitled: Faculty Use of OER: Attitudes, Norms, and Self-efficacy as Behavioral Predictors. The intention is to better understand how faculty use Open Educational Resources, and I am inviting you to participate because of your use or interest in OER. I am working with two faculty advisers, Dr. Neal Hutchens, Department of Higher Education and Dr. Marie Barnard, Pharmacy Administration.
Participation in this research involves taking a survey about your teaching practices and how you use OER, which will take approximately 10 minutes. After completing the survey you will have the opportunity to be entered into a drawing for one of four $50 Amazon gift cards.

Participation is completely voluntary and you may withdraw from the study at any time. The study is completely anonymous, therefore, it does not require you to provide your name or any other identifying information.
If you have any questions about this research, I can be reached at 662-915-2340 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your time and participation.
