Dear Introductory Biomechanics Professor/Instructor,

If you are reading this, we anticipate that you currently teach or have
taught an undergraduate Introductory Biomechanics course in North America
within the last five years in departments of exercise science, HPER,
kinesiology, etc.. If this is incorrect, we apologize for the
inconvenience and ask if you could please disregard this email.

We are writing you today to recruit your voluntary participation in an
anonymous survey. This survey is designed to document the current status
of the instruction and assessment strategies utilized in the undergraduate
Introductory Biomechanics course in North America. The brief,
approximately twenty minute survey will consist of demographic questions
about you, your department, your Introductory Biomechanics course, and the
instruction and assessment strategies you utilize in lecture and
laboratory sessions. We urge you to take this survey, regardless if your
course has laboratory sessions or not.

The results of this survey will be submitted for presentation at scientific
conferences and publication in scientific publications. No information
will be specifically identifiable to you, as your survey submission is
completely anonymous. Additionally, results will be presented in
aggregate form and distributed on the BIOMCH-L for all to benefit.

Thank you for considering our request. We anticipate that your responses
will contribute to the improvement of biomechanics teaching.

The following link will lead you to the web-based survey.

Please respond before November 10th, 2010 to ensure your input is included
in the study.
