What can we do about it?
In an effort to understand the provider-controlled factors that impact student attendance at non-mandatory workshops and academic events, we are asking you, as support providers, to tell us about workshops and sessions that you have offered to your students.
In our survey (link below), we ask specific questions about one session or event that you have hosted. We are interested in things like topic, duration, timing, target audience, advertisement and incentive. With the results of this survey, we hope to identify best
practices to improve attendance at sessions and increase the number of students that we can support.
This survey should take roughly 7 to 10 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey you will be able to enter for a chance to win a $100 (CAD or equivalent) gift certificate to Amazon, Chapters (or Barnes & Noble), Starbucks, or Time Hortons. Other gift
certificate options may also be available. Depending on the number of participants for this survey, up to 2 prizes will be made available.
