Collaborate with Us: Join Our Surveys of Students and Faculty

During the spring of 2012, we will conduct two online surveys in Florida, and we invite other postsecondary institutions and education agencies across the US and throughout the world to join us in making this an annual state, national, and international event.

Student Survey

Purpose

The student survey examines the costs of their textbooks and the consequences of those costs to students, their perceptions and preferences for formats and features of textbooks, and their familiarity and use of open textbooks, open educational resources, and open courseware. For more details, see the complete list of research questions for the student survey.

Faculty-Staff Survey

Purpose

The faculty and staff survey is intended to gauge respondents' familiarity, perceptions, and use of open textbooks, open educational resources, and open courseware. It probes their awareness of textbook costs, their process for selecting textbooks, their perceptions of study aids, and more. For more details, see the complete list of research questions for the faculty-staff survey.
