Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has partnered with Sibson Consulting, an independent national human capital consulting firm with a special focus in higher education, to administer and conduct a short survey on online & distance education faculty pay practices at select colleges and universities. Sibson is administering the questions through an online questionnaire. We were hoping that you, or another member of your staff, could spend 15-20 minutes to complete this survey. These questions will explore the pay practices, guidelines, and criteria for compensation of faculty who teach online or distance education courses. If you are able to answer these questions in the context of the entire academic year, please do so; if you can only answer with respect to summer courses, please note this in the final question (a free-form text box for additional comments).
All data submitted will remain strictly confidential. You may participate in the questionnaire online using the link provided below:
If you need to complete the questionnaire in multiple sittings, you will be able to save your progress and continue inputting your responses at a later time. The submission deadline is Friday, February 2. At the end of the study, we will provide you with a summary report of findings. We appreciate any time and assistance you can provide us. If you have any questions, please contact Carolyn at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-251-5938.
Thanks so much and we hope you will participate in this important study.
