Ctl2010 Survey Data

  1. 1. A pre-conference technology survey was sent out to all DU faculty and students in November 2009<br /> 1126 students and 156 instructors completed the anonymous survey<br />Selected response summaries and quotes from the survey are presented here<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. What recommendations would you give to your professors to better use technology in your courses?<br />Get people off the internet for pete&apos;s sake. Half the class is chatting with friends via social networking sites during lecture. Does that not bother the professors?<br />Be more interactive with material – I guess this isn’t a technology issue more than a teaching issue<br />Use it. Most don&apos;t make any effort.<br />
  4. 4.
  5. 5. What would you like to be able to do with technology in the classroom that you currently cannot?<br />Use it to enhance learning<br />Have it be more student interactive.<br />Interact with professor presentations<br />
  6. 6. What recommendations would you give to your professors to better use technology in your courses?<br />I would mostly just want to see a general increase in tech literacy. Although I can completely sympathize, it&apos;s still a bit unsettling to see a brilliant and otherwise well-educated professor stumbling around trying to figure out why they can&apos;t plug in a DVI cable to a VGA output.<br />Know how to use the equipment in the room.<br />
  7. 7.
  8. 8. What would you like to be able to do with technology in the classroom that you currently cannot?<br />Laptops aid in learning, they do not distract. Allow them with reason.<br />Collaboratively work on papers and submit assignments electronically instead of wasting paper.<br />Connect with other students in chat forums for group work.<br />
  9. 9. Student Responses:<br />Faculty Responses:<br />
  10. 10. What recommendations would you give to your professors to better use technology in your courses?<br />I think that if ALL professors would use blackboard by posting exam grades and power point slides it would be very beneficial … posting grades at least lets us know where we stand in the class and most of the professors that I have had do not post any grades until the last week of term.<br />Organize blackboard better. Some teachers post way to much information and it is not organized into folders or easy to find without having to search all over the place. More is not always better!!<br />

  12. 12. What would you like to be able to do with technology in the classroom that you currently cannot?<br />I would have loved to do a class presentation - the whole class using wikis, video, etc and then have it posted to YouTube as a research or learning tool.<br />Classroom settings are currently not that interactive. It would be nice to be able to follow along problem solving in a more useful way than just writing it down or doing clicker questions.<br />
  13. 13.
  14. 14. What recommendations would you give to your professors to better use technology in your courses?<br />Technology can be a useful learning tool. Be careful to make sure that it supplements the learning. In other words, don&apos;t have technology simply because it&apos;s technology.<br />Classes still generally follow a traditional class format with some technology grafted on. I would like to see a new culture around tech in the classroom. Perhaps having lectures and other course materials online so that a professor&apos;s face-to-face time with students is maximized. I don&apos;t need a professor to read an outline on PowerPoints to me, I can do that myself. I want to understand how they connect these basic ideas to interesting research or theoretical ideas that I haven&apos;t considered before.<br />
  15. 15. What would you like to be able to do with technology in the classroom that you currently cannot?<br />I would like to collaborate more with technologies like Podcasts with audio/video recording that could easily be placed on a phone or music player.<br />Twitter/text my questions and have them appear on a projected screen in the front of the classroom, this way other students may be able to answer my questions before the instructor has to stop class to address it. It would support collaborative learning. <br />

  17. 17. What recommendations would you give to your professors to better use technology in your courses?<br />No More BORING power points PLEASE!!!!!! It is soooo old and lazy and boring to have people read from them. Please use creativity with technology.<br />Use of a PowerPoint presentation should aid in their lectures, not be their lectures word for word. There is no sense in listening to a professor read everything off of a slideshow. <br />Don&apos;t rely too much on PowerPoint. rather than reading off slides verbatim, gain the respect and attention of the class. it&apos;s quite difficult when some twerp in front row is watching YouTube during class.<br />
