Surveys

Oct. 14, 2015 -- Inside Higher Ed's 2015 Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology explored the views of instructors (and campus administrators who oversee digital learning) on a range of timely issues.

A copy of the report can be downloaded here.

On Nov. 12, Inside Higher Ed's Scott Jaschik and Carl Straumsheim conducted a webinar analyzing the survey's findings and answering readers' questions. To view the webinar, please click here.
