5. Research Volunteer招募

亲爱的华盛顿大学的中国同学们:

你们好!
 
我是左微,三年前来华大攻读教育系/英语系的双硕士,现在华大英语系继续念博士。我研究的课题是“中国本科生在美国大学的学习与社交经历”,现在我需要征集4-6名华大本科生参与到我的研究中来。如果说您没有在美国读过高中,现在在华大读本科(具体哪一年纪专业没有关系),愿意分享你的经历,并且想了解更多同龄人在美国的学习生活故事,欢迎你加入我的研究,谢谢。
 
我的课题主要关注于来美国读本科的中国学生在英语习得,适应美式大学教学方式,与同学及教授人际交往等方面的问题。由于中国学生来美国,包括来华大的人数与日俱增,这样的研究具有迫切性和实际意义,能够通过了解部分中国本科生的经历来提供给美国教授、学校建议,也能让中国同学更好地了解如何有效适应美国高校学习,提高自身能力。
 
这个定性研究的具体方案是:经过你和教授的同意,我将会在课堂上观察和记录你(我本人不参与任何课堂活动);我们将会在学期开始前,学期中和学期末各进行一次访谈;我会搜集你所上的课的资料和你的作业。如果你的教授愿意,我会和他或者她见面聊聊你在课堂上的表现和他或者她的建议。这个研究是纯学术无报酬的,你的真实姓名和各项隐私将会得到保护,但是你将有机会思考自己的学习习惯和方式,了解同龄人的学习适应情况;并且,我会提供免费的英语文章修改和学术方面的咨询服务。同时,作为一个在华大学习数年的中国学生,我对于美国教育体制,华大资源,中英文思维对比,如何跟美国人交往等话题都有一定认识,愿意分享给我的研究对象。 这将会是一次愉悦的,有意义的,彼此都有收获的研究,期待本科生同学你的参与。
 
如果你感兴趣参与,或者有相关问题,请联系我:weizuo@uw.edu, 206-552-6698。

My research focuses on Chinese undergraduate students' second language (English) acquisition, academic socialization and cultural identity in the U.S.  I plan to adopt qualitative methods, selectively choosing 4-6 Chinese undergraduate students at the UW for ethnographic studies, observing them in their classroom setting and taking notes, interviewing the students and some of their instructors two to three times during the quarter, collecting the students’ syllabus and coursework, and organizing focus group discussions.
My research will investigate on the following issues:
(1) Students’ English learning and academic experience: strategies they use to improve English, different things they notice about the educational system, academic challenges and achievement, efforts to be legitimate members of their academic community, etc.
(2) Their interactions with classmates and their professors: students’ socialization with people and the environment, relationship-building with their classmates, teammates and professors.
(3) Self-identity: how much they assimilate and integrate into American culture, how much they resist, how much they decide to keep their own culture, etc.
 I want to explore if there are commonalities or tendencies in my research participants’ academic socialization at the UW. Based on the research result, I plan to give suggestions for future international students studying in the U.S. as well as for their hosting-country peers and instructors.
Procedures
If you choose to participate in this study, I would like to interview you three times throughout the Spring 2014 quarter, at the beginning, middle and end of the quarter, respectively.  Each interview will last no more than 60 minutes.  I would mainly ask you questions about your academic experience.  For example, I will ask you, “please talk more about the academic successes you have had and challenges you have faced,” “Could you please give me several examples of things you learned from your professors and classes, if there are any?” and “How do you describe your relationship with your classmates/instructors?” Upon the approval of you and at the convenient time and location for all participants, we will have an informal group discussion about topics that interest all participants. There will be no specific interview questions to respond to, but some topics might have appeared in a one-to-one interview I will have had with you.
In addition to interviewing you, I will try to sit in on five-ten sessions of each of your two-three courses upon the instructors’ approval. I will take field notes in the classroom and try to get a sense of how you learn in a classroom setting.  I might ask you questions about how you interpret your behavior/choices/performance in the classroom after the class.  I might also interview your instructors about his/her opinions of your learning.  None of data will influence your course grades and it is voluntary to participate.  
With your permission, I would like to audio tape your interviews so that I can have an accurate record of our conversation based on which I will write a written transcription. I will assign a pseudonym to you to protect your rights, and I will destroy the original recording at the end of June 2019.  The transcript will be sent to you for your reference electronically.  The data will be stored in a password protected computer that only I will have access to.    
Risks, stress or discomfort 
Some people might feel that interviews or observations will harm their privacy. If participants are uncomfortable with specific questions, they can choose not to answer them.  If they would like to withdraw from the study, they can do it any time they want.  What’s more, my interview protocols and observation focus are designed under the guidance of theory and professor’s instruction, the level of profession and specificity will help participant feel more comfortable.  
Benefits of the study
Many students find it helpful to reflect on their learning and self-identity, to reflect on what can be improved and what has been done well.  Another benefit may be the possibility of having more attention given to Chinese international students’ learning in the U.S. and possible improvement in university support and service to your group.    Also I will provide free tutoring sessions reviewing your composition and writings. 
If you are interested in participating , feel free to contact me at weizuo@uw.edu or 206-552-6698.
Thank you.
Wei
