If, when, and how to use surveys in Education Scholarship

This workshop is for individuals (or groups) working within health care, education and academic systems who are involved in (or considering) using surveys to support research, evaluation, or other education scholarship activities. The workshop will explore the reasons for conducting surveys as well as how to optimize alignment between survey methods, scholarly questions, and research paradigms. It will also examine critical and ethical considerations for the design and administration of surveys.

Through interactive activities and discussions, participants in this discussion will learn how to clarify the purpose and audience for surveys they design. Further, they will be introduced to best practices for question development, survey administration, data analysis, and interpretation.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to articulate a preliminary plan for scholarly survey design, and administration, and identify where further expertise is required. Participants will also be provided with multiple resources to support continued learning in this area.
