Who Are We?
September 2, 2009 - 9:26pm


I was perusing my Chronicle of Higher Ed. Almanac this afternoon. I learned that:

--About 2.6 million folks work in higher education.

--About 1.4 million are faculty members.

--Of these faculty members, about 51% work full-time.
Lots of other good facts, but nothing I could find on the numbers, composition, or change among learning technologists.

How many of us are out there?

Is anyone measuring our profession? Surveying are members? Researching our professional backgrounds, educational attainment, career paths, and major challenges? How do we break down by age, gender, race/ethnicity and region.

A quick Web search did not yield much. I'm hoping that someone knows about how to find this information and about who is collecting and disseminating this research.
