Surveys Report Illuminates UW Student, Faculty Technology Trends
Insight into UW Seattle student and faculty technology use and trends, gleaned from recent surveys, is now available online. The Report on the 2011 Faculty, Teaching Assistant, and Student Surveys illuminates patterns of technology use and identifies unmet needs that help inform future campus technology decisions. The surveys are conducted every three years at UW Seattle. This effort is part of the UW’s 2y2d Teaching & Learning in the 21st Century Initiative. Key takeaways include: student proficiency with and access to technology is high, students use technology to support their learning beyond what instructors require, and students and instructors use educational technologies to make large classes more manageable and to increase collaboration and communication.
