AIR and Eduventures® Research announced that the National Survey of Postsecondary CBE has launched. From their press release:
Many in the CBE community (and beyond!) have provided helpful input into this survey, which seeks to understand the scale and scope of postsecondary CBE at institutions like yours – and, for those institutions who completed Eduventures’ 2016 survey, how implementation has changed over time. We ask that your institutions take a few minutes to complete the survey, which will help answer questions for the field like:

  • How many programs exist, and in what disciplines/areas;
  • How institutions are implementing CBE;
  • How many students are enrolled or have completed; and
  • Perceptions about facilitators and barriers to adoption.

How you can contribute: Academic leaders at your institution will be receiving a personalized link to the survey early this afternoon. If you received it, please take the time to complete it (or forward on to the appropriate person). If you did not receive it and would like to know who received the invitation on behalf of your institution so that you can encourage them to complete it or forward it on, please let us know using let us know using this short web form.

Thank you to the many members of this list who provided ideas and guidance for this survey! We look forward to sharing results with you beginning at CBExchange in September. Future versions of this survey will be conducted annually through 2020 to track the evolution of the field.
