Instructor Needs Assessment Questionnaire Link

CATE was established at UIC in July 2020, with the goal of serving as a teaching hub. The vision for CATE is to be a space where all those in the UIC teaching community (current and future faculty, graduate student teaching assistants, and instructors across undergraduate, graduate and professional school courses in Chicago and at regional campuses) can find supportive teaching and technology resources, services and professional learning programs.

CATE currently offers instructors:

The needs assessment questionnaire is designed to assess UIC instructors’ most pressing needs and challenges, learn about the types of resources, services and professional development opportunities they’d like to see, and gather feedback on CATE’s marketing and outreach efforts.

Thank you for taking the time to complete this questionnaire and for providing CATE with this important feedback. Your responses will remain anonymous, identifiable only by college and department affiliation. This questionnaire should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
