About this Research
In response to declining attendance at library and student help workshops, this research is aimed at determining what we, as providers, can do to encourage students to attend the sessions we host.
In this 7 - 10 minute survey, please provide details about one specific workshop that you have offered. We are equally interested in workshops that have had both high and low attendance rates, and encourage you to share any information you are willing to help inform our research. If you have hosted multiple workshops at your institution, we further encourage you to complete the survey more than once; there is no limit to the number of times you may complete the survey.
To thank you for your participation, you can choose to be entered for a chance to win a $100 (CAD or equivalent) gift certificate to Amazon, Chapters / Barnes & Noble, Starbucks or Tim Hortons. Other gift certificate locations may be considered at the winners' requests.
For the purposes of this project, a non-mandatory academic enrichment workshop is defined as any optional, class-like offering provided by a non-professor/instructor (such as a librarian, library staff, or staff member at a writing or math help centre) outside of course hours for the purpose of providing academic support. For example, a non-mandatory academic enrichment workshop might be a session on plagiarism, a workshop on GIS software, or a talk about scholarly publishing. Non-mandatory academic enrichment workshops do not include anything offered by a teaching assistant for the purposes of a specific course, and do not include any sessions targeted solely at faculty and staff (mixed target audiences welcome).
