Project Updates

Faculty Open Education Awareness Survey


The purpose of the Open Education Awareness Survey was to gauge Centralia College faculty awareness of licensing options and materials available with Open Education Resources.


Researchers interested in exploring faculty awareness of Open Education have struggled with gauging awareness without providing "leading questions" (Babson, 2014). We used the Babson survey (2014) to build our research mechanism for Centralia College. The Babson survey combined previously used questions in their surveys; the researchers felt that combining a basic definition of OER and then immediately asking for specific examples without prompts provides an adequate initial representation of faculty awareness of OER.
