Call for Participation: Higher Education Survey

Author: Fu-Ying Lin

Summary: Call for Participation: Higher Education Survey (for academia persons working in higher education institutes or research centers, and for affiliates)

Dear friends,

The Education team at the Wikimedia Foundation is happy to announce two surveys in higher education. The first one is for university faculty to investigate their perceptions of Wikipedia, and the second survey is for affiliates to investigate affiliates’ perceptions and activities in higher education.

You are kindly invited to participate in the affiliate survey and also very welcome to share the academic survey to any academic persons in your network. We appreciate your participation. Deadline is 9th April 2022.

Additionally, we need help translating these two surveys. If you are able, please help us translate it into any additional language. We especially want to be able to share it in the major UN languages and as many smaller languages as possible. We’ll announce new versions when we get translations. It’s very easy to help with translations, all you have to do is open the academic translation spreadsheet and affiliate translation spreadsheet, and then follow the simple directions on the first tab.
