Technical Profiles Questions

The Technology Profiles question sets will contribute to building up a picture of how university staff use technology: the actions, expectations and possible problems encountered in work, travel and home situations.

Question Sets will be (subject to change):

  • Set 1: Technology in your academic life
  • Set 2: Technology amongst the staff population
  • Set 3: Technology in your organisation
  • Set 4: Technology in teaching scenarios
  • Set 5: Technology amongst the student population
  • Set 6: Technology in your future work life balance

QUESTION SETS

Question Set 1

The first quick set of questions is to build up your technical profile on how you use technology in your daily life.
Set 1: Technology in your academic life

Question Set 2

The second set of questions is to build up an idea of how technology is used amongst the staff in a university.
Set 2: Technology amongst the staff population

Question Set 3

The third set of questions is to gather information on how staff experience the technology provided by their institution.

Set 3: Technology in your organisation

Question Set 4

The fourth set of questions relates to uses of technology in teaching scenarios – both directly, and underlying perceptions and associated services.

Set 4: Technology in teaching scenarios

Question Set 5

The fifth set of questions is all about technology amongst the student population and how you perceive the territory. Everyone has a valid opinion on this, not just teaching staff.

Set 5: Technology amongst the student population

Question Set 6

The sixth and final set of questions is about technology and the future, how your work and life could change because of technology. This set has 6 questions, the last being an open ended more detailed question*.

Set 6: Technology in your future work life balance

*To replace the idea of interviews, Question Set 6 contains an open ended question at the end which I would ask that you consider carefully and answer as in depth and as truthfully as you can or have time for.


Each set of questions will not be more than 12 questions (usually 8), and always very short, 2-5 minutes of your time at most. This is to encourage ease of taking part, and honest input. These questions are being asked of a staff group of participants drawn from a variety of academic work areas and international settings. FYI: BE SURE TO CHECK THE SECTION ON ETHICS AND CONSENT.

*If we have time, I would like to organise some type of short interview in a semi-scripted scenario with those who might wish to take part (30 minutes, recorded), however, I will confirm this later in the project.
