  1. 21st Century Faculty and Students: Educational Technology Surveys 2009 Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  2. OIT Student and Faculty Technology Surveys - 2009 Surveys – so what? Interesting features: • Longitudinal: third in a series (2004, 2007); some questions date to 2001 • Comparative: ability to compare students and faculty • Generational: ability to look for technology-related generational change (e.g., “digital natives”) Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  3. OIT Student and Faculty Technology Surveys - 2009 • Asked about student and faculty experiences, attitudes, preferences, perceptions, problems • Delivered online in spring 2009… • …to stratified random samples of students and faculty at the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities campus • Supplemented by focus groups Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  4. Student and Faculty Tech Surveys – 2009Respondents • respondents demographically similar to nonrespondents Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  5. Student Tech Survey – 2009Continuity over time • Survey responses overall quite similar to those from 2004 and 2007. Students continue to have: • positive attitudes toward technology • high comfort levels • few problems using technology • high experience levels Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  6. Faculty Tech Survey – 2009Continuity over time • Survey responses overall quite similar to those from 2004 and 2007. Faculty continue to report: • positive attitudes toward technology • high perceived usefulness • broad experience using technology in teaching Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  7. Student Tech Survey – 2009Experience : Courses that use online technology Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  8. Student Tech Survey – 2009Experience: Fully online courses • growth rate similar to Sloan Foundation’s 17% Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  9. Faculty Tech Survey – 2009Experience using technology Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  10. Faculty Tech Survey – 2009Experience using technology • Taught at least one online course: • Minnesota: 10.2% • Sloan/APLU: 34.4% • Why? • Question wording (“most or all content online” vs “total online, no face-to-face interaction”) • Sampling • Response rate Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  11. Student/Faculty Tech Surveys – 2009Experience: Fully online courses Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  12. Student Tech Survey 2009Technology use: Web 2.0 Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  13. Student Tech Survey 2009Web 2.0: ECAR Comparison • Percentage of students who never: • Why? • Question wording (e.g. “contribute content” vs “upload video”) • Sampling/response rates

  14. Student Tech Survey 2009Web 2.0: The 1% Rule • most students use Web 2.0 technologies like blogs, wikis, and podcasting as consumers rather than producers • “What is the 1% rule? It's an emerging rule of thumb that suggests that if you get a group of 100 people online then one will create content, 10 will "interact" with it (commenting or offering improvements) and the other 89 will just view it.” • - Charles Arthur, July 20, 2006, The Guardian

  15. Student Tech Survey – 2009Technology as info delivery • students seem to view educational technology primarily as a means for delivering information efficiently and conveniently • shown in: • what tech students find useful • types of uses they favor • best uses of tech Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  16. Faculty Tech Survey – 2009Technology as info delivery • faculty also see educational technology primarily as a means for delivering information efficiently and conveniently • shown in: • attractors • effective uses • ideal classroom • what faculty want to learn about • delivery-model uses of tech consistently rated above uses having to do with collaboration, interaction, gaming, etc. Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  17. Student Tech Survey 2009Mobile technology ownership Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  19. Faculty Tech Survey – 2009Digital distractions Three groups of faculty: • the incensed: “it bugs me – an incredibly disrespectful behavior.” • the resigned: “using digital media is part of my students’ everyday life now… I can’t control daydreaming either.” • the circumspect: “I believe this is a challenge to create learning opportunities with more involvement.” Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  20. Student Tech Survey – 2009Digital distractions Three groups of students: • the distracted: “I tend to do it… it’s bad news and very distracting.” • the undistracted: “It doesn’t affect my learning when [someone else] is on Facebook.” • the incensed: “I hate watching kids surf the internet while in class. I find it rude to the professor.” Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  21. Student/Faculty Tech Survey – 2009Faculty and students on online courses • results similar to ECAR 2009 Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  22. Student Tech Survey – 2009Faculty and students on online courses Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  23. Faculty Tech Survey – 2009Faculty and students on online courses Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  24. Student/Faculty Tech Survey – 2009Faculty and students on class capture • “don’t know” numbers about 5% (students) and 10% (faculty) Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  25. Student Tech Survey – 2009Are students digital natives? With respect to: • experience and use: yes • expertise and abilities: no • preferences: maybe Office of Information Technology | www.umn.edu/oit

  26. Faculty Tech Survey – 2009Are faculty millennial instructors? Age does matter. Older faculty: • perceive themselves to be less skilled with tech • encounter more problems (e.g. time, keeping up with changes, lack of standardization) • are less attracted to tech (less enjoyment, less use of multimedia, less communication with students • (Thanks to Carl Berger!)
