Discussion created by Albert Ritzhaupt on Jul 3, 2018

Hello Instructional Design Professionals,


We are still seeking more participants to complete our survey! We are conducting a study on the professional needs and motivations of instructional design professionals working in higher education to join and maintain membership in relevant professional associations. This survey is targeting instructional design professionals working in the context of higher education only. The survey should take no longer than 20 minutes to complete. The researchers are all members of the Design and Development Division of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT). The study is monitored by the IRB at the University of Florida. We are seeking this information to plan relevant professional learning opportunities and services for this target population. Please feel free to share this survey link with instructional designers you know working in the higher education environment. We appreciate your time and consideration. The survey will remain open until July 12, 2018.
