Key Findings 2006 - Faculty
In Spring 2006, SFCC participated in the second year of this survey. Results are broken into two categories: a section of questions/answers pertaining to faculty workload, demographics, classroom strategies, etc; and a second section comparing faculty and student responses to the same question (modified slightly for each audience).
- Over 200 SFCC faculty teaching 16-week courses in spring 2006 were invited via email to participate in the survey. Our response rate was 45% (national response rate is 35%), meaning slightly over 100 full- and part-time faculty participated in the survey.
- Faculty were asked to answer the questions while thinking of a particular section of a course while students were asked to answer similar questions based on their experiences at SFCC within the past year. Thus, it's not always possible to draw a direct line between each group's response, but it is worthwhile to pay attention to any disparities in perception/response.
- The survey is general, meaning it attempted to be relevant to the broadest number of courses we offer and the faculty teaching them. Thus, certain questions may not have felt relevant to the participating faculty member, but the overall data is quite important.
