Event Description


Evaluating and researching teaching and learning is an important endeavour. Choosing the right approach and tools is key to obtaining the evidence needed to assess the outcomes of a project and the impact of our teaching practices. While surveys are one of the most commonly used data collection methods, designing effective surveys that elicit useful and insightful data can be challenging.

In this workshop, participants will gain an understanding of when surveys serve as an appropriate evaluation tool, the most common types of questions used in teaching and learning projects, and best practices around inclusivity and diversity issues.

Please note this session is only available for UBC students, instructors, faculty and staff.
