Developing Research on Teaching Surveys: A Session for Beginners
March 22, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Do you have the right tools for your Research on Teaching (RT) project? How do you know? In this interactive session, participants will work in small groups to generate a list of rules for creating good survey items from cases provided by the facilitator and even write a few items of their own. Sound practices in finding and using existing measures will also be discussed; including issues concerning copyright, reliability, and validity.
