ITS surveying randomly chosen faculty on technology needs, experiences

A randomly selected group of 2,500 University faculty members will soon receive an email invitation from Chief Information Officer John Campbell to participate in a national survey about experiences with technology. Participation in this 15-minute, web-based survey is strongly encouraged and could help Information Technology Services provide better services and experiences.

The survey link will be sent within a week from CIO@mail.wvu.edu and will remain live until midnight March 20. The WVU Institutional Research Board has approved this research project as an exempt study.

This national EDUCAUSE survey also will help ITS measure its progress with other institutions. EDUCAUSE is a nonprofit association that helps those who lead, manage and use information technology to shape strategic decisions at every level within higher education.

Results from past surveys have provided guidance on wireless coverage for classrooms as ITS upgrades campus buildings. This survey will be an opportunity to weigh in on such issues as mobility, networking and other topics.

Participation is voluntary, and the invitation will include an opt-out link. All responses will be anonymous and confidential.
