A Survey of the Professional Development Needs and Interests of CAUCE Members

  • Gordon Thompson University of Saskatchewan
  • Walter Archer University of Saskatchewan


In 2002, the CAUCE Professional Development Committee sponsored a survey of CAUCE members to gather information on their professional development needs and interests. This paper presents the results of this survey and compares it with the results of previous surveys. A particularly interesting aspect of the 2002 survey was the results of a self-assessment by CAUCE members on a series of specific professional competencies. In addition, the results of the present survey were discussed at a meeting of CAUCE deans and directors in February 2003 and a summary of that discussion is provided. The paper concludes with some questions and suggestions relating to future surveys.
