Final Report Now Available for the 2008 Surveys on Learning and Scholarly Technologies
In April 2008, Learning & Scholarly Technologies, a unit of UW Technology, surveyed UW faculty members, researchers, teaching assistants, and students about their use of learning and scholarly technologies. This is the third triennial, institutional survey on this topic. In developing these surveys, UW Technology collaborated with UW Libraries, the UW Teaching Academy, the Faculty Council of Educational Technology, UW Health Sciences, and the Office of Educational Assessment.
The 2008 surveys focus on identifying instructional and learning goals, understanding research goals, learning how existing technologies are being used to help meet those goals, discovering the supports and obstacles to using technology, and prioritizing future needs. Results from the surveys will help the University make informed decisions about where to devote time and resources, by better understanding how instructors and students use current technologies and collecting information to anticipate future technology and support needs.
