CETE STEM Teacher Preparation Survey
2012 Survey of STEM Teacher Preparation Programs at Liberal Arts Institutions
Welcome to the 2012 Survey of STEM Teacher Preparation Programs at Liberal Arts Institutions.
The research survey is being conducted with financial support from the Consortium for Excellence in Teacher Education (CETE). We have also submitted a grant (status: pending) to the National Science Foundation to support this work.
The goal of this survey is to gather information on the practices, challenges and successful components of STEM teacher preparation programs at liberal arts institutions. The survey is being done in conjunction with the May 30-June 1, 2012 conference at Bryn Mawr College on STEM Teacher Preparation Programs at Liberal Arts Institutions. We will use the data to inform discussion at the conference as well as to provide information to the educational community on the status of STEM teacher preparation at liberal arts institutions.
This is a confidential survey. Any information that is obtained in connection with this study and that can be identified with a participant or an institution will remain confidential and will be disclosed only with participant’s permission or as required by law. Any quotes used will not be attributed to specific individuals. As an online participant in this research, there is always the risk of intrusion, however small, by outside agents (i.e., hacking) and, therefore the possibility of being identified exists. No absolute guarantees can be made regarding the confidentiality of electronic data. The results of this survey may be published in scholarly journals and presented at academic conferences.
The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. If you agree to complete this survey, your participation is entirely voluntary and unpaid. You may decline to answer any questions you do not wish to answer by indicating N/A and may discontinue the survey at any time. At the same time, we would greatly appreciate your completing as much of the survey as possible, thus enhancing the overall value of the survey results.
