Undergraduates Sought for Paid Research Study

Researchers at Michigan Tech are currently running a paid online study to look at the differences between in-person and remote academic teamwork environments. Undergraduates in the majors listed below are invited to participate.

During a 50-minute webinar session, participants will be asked to watch a short video of a team and report their reactions to it. Then you will complete a brief diagnostic test, which will be used to place you on a 4-person team. That team will then complete a group task via Zoom webinar.

Participants will receive a $20 Amazon gift card. Participation in this study is completely voluntary; it is not connected in any way to your evaluation in your courses.
