National Geoscience Faculty Survey


The National Geoscience Faculty Survey has collected data through four distributions (in 2004, 2009, 2012, and 2016) on teaching in undergraduate geoscience courses, how faculty learn about pedagogy and content, and how faculty participate in the geoscience education community. There is now a rich longitudinal dataset that can be analyzed to address questions of interest to geoscience educators and the larger STEM education community, including both teaching practice and faculty learning. The 2016 survey was designed by a research team involving leadership from NAGT along with three NSF-funded professional development projects (On the Cutting Edge, InTeGrate, and SAGE 2YC). The 2016 survey and past surveys are available on the On the Cutting Edge: Evaluation page. Data derived from the first three distributions of the Geoscience Faculty Survey were reported in Macdonald et al. (2005) and Manduca et al. (2017).
