This study is based upon a survey done by the Office of Institutional Development and Technology and the Institute of Teaching & Learning done on the faculty of College of the Canyons who have taken at least one of the Institute's courses since it began. The goal was to get information that can be used for program improvements. Out of the 66 people that the survey was sent to, 27 completed it in an acceptable way, making the response rate 41 percent. Most of the respondents were satisfied with the course/s they had taken and were interested in taking more classes. Almost of all of the respondents agreed with the relevancy of the course's content, effectiveness of instructor, and the positive impact made upon those who had taken the class. The survey included an open-ended comments area that yielded mostly positive results and expressed the desire of the faculty to take more classes. Another section was titled the suggestions of improvement that found that most faculties expressed a need for more classes as well as more classes offered to the faculty. The document contains three figures, three appendices, and a copy of the survey. (MZ)
