PROJECT TITLE : Faculty Use of an E-Textbook Package to Teach Counseling Theories: Who, Why, and How?


You are being invited to participate in a research project conducted by Jeannette Dixon from the College of Education, Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Houston. This research project is part of the dissertation for the degree Doctor of Education (Ed. D.) It is being conducted under the sponsorship of Dr. Melissa Pierson.


Your participation is voluntary and you may refuse to participate or withdraw at any time without penalty or loss of benefits to which you are otherwise entitled. You may also refuse to answer any question.


The goal of this research is to better understand actual faculty use of an e-textbook with supplemental online materials that are offered in combination with a course management system. The results may provide significant insights into who these e-textbook adopters are, why they chose to adopt the e-textbook over the print version, and how they have taught with it.

The duration of the entire study will be 11 months.


All adopters of the e-textbook package for Theories and Design in Counseling and Psychotherapy are invited to participate in this study. A total of approximately 20 subjects are expected to participate.

If you consent to participating, you will be asked to participate in the following procedures:

  • Interviews – participate in two individual telephone interviews, one toward the beginning of the semester and one at the end will be recorded. Each session is estimated to take between 30 to 45 minutes.
  • Optional conference call - all participants will be invited to participate in a telephone conference call with 3 or 4 other faculty adopters. The call will last between 45 minutes to one hour.
  • Answer an online questionnaire.
  • Allow the investigator access to the online course you have created using the e-textbook package, and permit occasional data capture from it.
  • Allow the investigator access to other materials related to the class that you consider significant.
  • Allow the investigator to record phone calls made to her in her role as technical assistant for Lahaska Press in working with the e-textbook materials.

- Possibly participate in a face-to-face interview, in which the investigator would travel to your location.

Your total time commitment, including follow-up, will amount to between 2 ½ and 3 ½ hours, depending on whether or not you participate in the conference call, and/or the face-to-face interview with the investigator.


Your identity will be held in strict confidence.

Every effort will be made to maintain the confidentiality of your participation in this project. Each subject’s name will be paired with a code number by the principal investigator. This code number will appear on all written materials. The list pairing the subject’s name to the assigned code number will be kept separate from all research materials and will be available only to the principal investigator. Confidentiality will be maintained within legal limits.
