What are we doing

What are we doing?

The Student Researchers work together and independently. We meet once a month and have jointly designed our inventory survey. We use the survey quite independently to gather our information, coming together to decide how we might present it.


What are our challenges

What are our challenges?

  • Engaging people to respond to our survey requests.

  • Creating understanding of potential for this inventory.

  • Creating understanding of why people should take the time to complete the survey.

  • How best to present the inventory information.

  • How best to collect and manage data.


How have we addressed these

How have we addressed these?

  • Email, personal phone calls, and filling out surveys ourselves using information from webpages has helped engage people.

  • Focused on potential for networking and research possibilities; online survey form brings participants to RCE homepage for further information that cannot be captured in a single email or phone call.

  • Focused on networking and collaborating for increased identification of ESD initiatives.

  • Created template of survey; first as a document and then as an online survey form.

  • Online survey form deposits data into database for easier data management.

Where to from here

Where to from here?

  • Consider our data

  • Develop a searchable database that accesses all of the information

  • Possibly present this data in some graphic (mapping) format…
