CAUCE Institutional Members' Survey: A Snapshot
Carter, Lorraine; Taylor-O'Reilly, Tracey
Canadian Journal of University Continuing Education, v35 n2 p29-42 Fall 2009
Continuing education in Canadian universities is currently at a type of crossroads. It is being affected by a number of factors, including recent changes in the economy; the different approaches universities are taking to continuing education, which range from centralized to decentralized models; and the blending of continuing education with areas such as online and distance education. Given these circumstances, the CAUCE Executive, under the leadership of Tracey Taylor-O'Reilly, CAUCE president, and Lorraine Carter, its Research Committee chair, designed and disseminated an institutional members' survey in Spring 2009. The ultimate goal of this initiative was to generate a snapshot of the needs of CAUCE's institutional members and to use these findings to plan programs and services that reflect the needs of the membership. Further, the Executive intends to repeat the survey every few years. This article reports the key findings of the survey as descriptive statistics and recurring messages offered in open ended questions and as additional comments. (Contains 4 tables.)
