Abstract:
An adaptive survey instrument used in Spring 2018 to gauge SUNY Oswego faculty use (current and future) of digital tools for research/teaching; their interest in using a classroom lab and a project lab; resources needed to use digital tools; the digital artifacts they/their students are creating; where those artifacts are being housed; the importance of digital innovations in their field; and their interest in collaborating with others on digital projects. Based on how faculty answered the first questions about their current use of digital tools, they were given different survey questions, for either current users of digital tools, or non-users of digital tools.
Acquisition:
Collected for SUNY Oswego's Institutional Repository by the OswegoDL Self-Submittal tool. Submitted by Sarah Weisman.
