Event Title

OpenEd Conference 2022

Date Created



The presenter developed and distributed two campus survey questionnaires in fall 2018, and redistributed them in fall 2021, to see what, if anything, had changed in responses. One survey focused on textbook and course materials costs and impacts on students. The other survey focused on perceptions and awareness of open educational resources (OER) by faculty members. The survey instruments were deployed both years via the Provost's Office to students and faculty. This session features an analysis of results and implications of the fall 2021 survey results, how the themes and trends compared to the fall 2019 surveys; how survey data can be used for understanding, advocacy, and advancing OER initiatives; and a look at the pros and cons of conducting campus surveys.
