Data from student and faculty survey conducted in 2013

Technology in the service of teaching and learning: data from spring survey of Faculty & Students, 2013

We have created a site to provide feedback — finally — with respect to the tech and teaching survey taken by 118 faculty last spring.  The survey addressed faculty use of technology and their desires/needs for technology in the future.

It also contains information from the student survey that was taken by >400 students.

Thanks to everyone that filled it out. The results have already been used to inform a SPRITE committee on learning management systems AND classroom spaces.  We’ve also used it to make decisions on workshops and are using it as a starting place for discussions that involve student observations on tech and learning.

We are still referring to some of this data although we recognize that it may be out of date already.
