FATE is proud to announce the third in a series of Foundations Surveys offered each decade since 2003. Every 10 years we "take the pulse" of what is going on in Foundations teaching. This survey is ready for you! We know you are very busy but each decade hundreds of teachers take the time to respond. Won't you help out?
"As a part of its efforts to address the educational needs of this group, FATE develops and sends out surveys to its members to elicit their input. These surveys are your voice. As an active professor teaching foundations and as a former chair and dean, I know the importance of the information gathered in these surveys. If you are new to FATE, I ask you to please consider taking the time to participate and being a part of this survey. If you are a continuing member of FATE, you know the value of this survey and the importance of your continued participation." - Steven Bleicher, Professor of Art at Coastal Carolina University.
All responses will be kept secure anonymous/private and used only for the distribution as aggregated data of Foundation Research in professional publication(s) by Scott Betz and/or FATE and potential future Foundation scholars.
