The TLTC partners with the Division of IT. We know that technology has the power to transform academic and research practices. To support this vision, DIT staff continuously analyze how instructors and students are engaging with digital technology. DIT uses data from the systems it supports and from the students, faculty, and staff we serve to inform everything from business decisions to training to strategic plans. Learn about some highlighted projects below. For previous work, please see our publications and presentations page.
Exploring the Transition to Online Learning, Teaching, and Working | Student, Faculty, and Staff Surveys
Students, faculty, and staff at the University of Maryland, College Park were invited to complete surveys on their transitions to online learning, teaching and working in Spring 2020 and again in Fall 2020 to inform planning, training, and outreach. The survey administration, analysis, and reporting was a collaborative effort, involving many units across campus. UMD community members can learn the main themes that emerge in the reports of the student, faculty, and staff surveys.
Technological Readiness for Learning/Teaching Remotely Survey
In March 2020, faculty, staff, and students at the University of Maryland, College Park were invited to complete the Technological Readiness for Learning/Teaching Remotely Survey in anticipation of the university transitioning to remote learning/instruction due to COVID-19. The survey included sections on access to technology outside of the University of Maryland, College Park campus, familiarity with and use of the ELMS-Canvas platform, and demographic information. The goal of the survey was to assess the readiness of students, faculty, and staff for online learning and instruction, including identifying potential challenges and issues that could affect the academic experience.
