The purpose of the survey was to:

• Evaluate faculty interest in innovative and inclusive teaching methods
• Identify potential barriers to adoption
• Gather information on the various teaching technologies and platforms currently used in CEMS
Survey sections included Teaching Practices, Inclusive Teaching, Community, Pedagogical Interests, Teaching Technologies, and Demographic Information.
 

Spring 2020 CEMS Remote Instruction Student Survey

  • Developed by the CEMS Pedagogical Innovation Committee with input from the CEMS Office of Student Services and the CEMS Diversity & Inclusion Committee.
  • Deployed April 27 through May 10 to gather information on students' experience following the transition to remote instruction in March 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 
  • Survey results were used to inform teaching practices and support services, beginning summer 2020.
  • In total, 303 responses were gathered from CEMS students, across years and programs.
