Free Webinar-Faculty Attitudes on Technology

Inside Higher Ed's 2013 Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology -- conducted with Gallup -- aims to understand how college and university faculty members and campus leaders in educational technology perceive and pursue online learning and other emerging opportunities for delivering course content. Highlights of the survey findings include:
  • Few faculty believe that online courses can achieve student learning outcomes as well as in-person courses.
  • Whether an online program is offered by an accredited institution tops the list of factors that contribute to quality in online education according to faculty members. Technology administrators are far likelier to associate quality with academic credit.
  •  Faculty members feel strongly that institutions should start MOOCs only with faculty approval, and that MOOCs should be evaluated by accrediting agencies.
  • Of faculty who have never taught an online course, 30 percent say the main reason they haven't is because they've never been asked.
  • Faculty members and technology officers alike agree that their institutions fail to reward teaching with technology in tenure and promotion decisions.
On Thursday, September 12 at 2 p.m. Eastern, join Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman for a free webinar. Scott and Doug will lead a lively discussion sparked by the results of the survey and questions/comments from participants.
