DEIT Faculty Satisfaction Survey Results

DEIT Faculty Satisfaction Survey Results

Thank you to the 94 DeSales full-time and part-time faculty members that responded in October to the Distance Education and Instructional Technology Department’s 2017 Faculty Satisfaction Survey. DEIT conducted a similar survey in 2015, which provides a baseline for comparison.

Key findings:

  • Ninety-six percent (96%) of respondents expressed overall satisfaction with DEIT’s faculty support services (up from 90% in 2015).
  • Eighty-one percent (81%) of respondents rated DeSales’ level of instructional technology infrastructure and support as better than peer institutions (up from 65% in 2015).
  • Eighty-four percent (84%) of respondents reported that they had “a good understanding of the services DEIT offers and how these services relate to your teaching” (up from 78% in 2015).
  • Perception improved of the effectiveness of the Help Desk in handling instructional technology issues. Fifty-eight percent (58%) found the Help Desk “effective” or “very effective” while only 15% found it “ineffective” or “very ineffective” (26% were “neutral”). In 2015, more faculty found the Help Desk to be a negative than a positive.
