Future of ELESIG - consultation survey results

Future of ELESIG - consultation survey results

Early 2019, the ELESIG Organising Committee ran a consultation with all our members to consider ELESIG’s future directions (see consultation document) via a survey emailed to all members via our ning site. Altogether 70 members responded (of 2400 members on elesig.ning site).

We have had really positive results in terms of the value of ELESIG to members. Some highlights include (please see the survey report in PDF for full details):

  • Two-thirds of members responding indicated a preference for becoming a SIG within ALT.
  • What members value (and want to keep) as distinct in ELESIG is its focus on learning experience over technology, and on research and evaluation & sharing methods.
  • Members also value the inclusiveness of ELESIG, it is seen a friendly and collegial group.
  • Members indicated wishing to continue with successful and useful activities such as webinars and local/regional events (with extending these to national/international events).

Based on these results, the Organising Committee met on 25th June 2019 and is putting together a proposal to become a SIG within ALT. Updates will follow.

Thank you all for your contributions and looking forward to progressing and building our community from strength to strength.

             Tunde Varga-Atkins (Chair) and Vicki Dale (Secretary)
