[teknoids] Suggestions for 1L Technology Survey?

It is anonymous data that doesn't put the subject at risk. (separate from not being research) It is not an IRB issue.

Rich, Ken,

I've worked with our IRB office before and they use the same criteria for whether or not something is an instructional or administrative tool or whether it is "research".  This data is only useful to us for decision making so it probably won't merit an IRB review but I will check with them anyway.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Will

At our university the dividing line between admin tool and research is whether or not it will be published formally or informally.  For example I had to get approval from our research board to post the results of our survey on our blog.

One other aspect of a survey like this is that it provides an opportunity for informal education.  Hopefully the student who answers the backup questions with "None" will think… "hey, maybe I should figure out a way to backup my data."

Take Care,

Rich

I’d like to know at what point does such a survey move from being an administrative tool to a research exercise that requires approval from your institutional research board.

I would like to know if they are using citation managers such as Endnote, or more advanced PDF management and annotation solutions like Qiqqa. These are becoming standard research tools in graduation education outside of law. Annotation managers such as Qiqqa provide an excellent solution to annotating, referencing, and storing legal references such as cases and articles. This would allow students to create a system to  accumulate research materials during law school and smoothly transition them into practice.

Subject: [teknoids] Suggestions for 1L Technology Survey?

Hello Everyone,

For the past several years, we've surveyed our incoming 1Ls regarding their technology ownership and use.  We also recently began asking students about their experience with and disposition towards online learning.  But I'm wondering if we ought to be more ambitious or if we ought to reconsider our approach.

Do any of you have thoughts or opinions on this?  What do you or would you want to know of your incoming 1Ls?  Please feel free to visit the survey below or consult the attachment.  I'm also happy to share a copy of the survey as a Qualtrics .qsf file if anyone would like to import and modify it.

Thanks,

Will
