If I Had a Million Dollars

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Abstract

This ECAR Research Bulletin focuses on EDUCAUSE Core Data Service (CDS) survey results related to a somewhat lighthearted but insightful hypothetical question about how two constituent groups might choose to spend money to improve teaching and learning. Respondents were asked how they thought faculty and students would spend a $1,000,000 grant that was restricted to enhancing teaching and learning via information technology. The responses show areas of overlap and divergence between the expected allocations of faculty versus students. The results are also compared to data from the ECAR National Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology, 2011 Report.

The ECAR CDS Spotlight Research Bulletin Series highlights findings from the EDUCAUSE Core Data Service (CDS), focusing on a small but meaningful slice of data collected in the CDS. These selected highlights are intended to provide context and meaning for CDS benchmarks that may be of especially broad interest, be especially timely, or draw connections between research from ECAR and CDS. The series is featured along with other CDS publications on the CDS website, http://www.educause.edu/coredata, and is now available to eligible ECAR subscribers as part of the ECAR subscription.
