    Training for Staff - Survey

    I need to come up with some training Ideas for our Teaching and Support Staff,

    I plan on using limesurvey (LimeSurvey.org - THE Survey software - free and open source!) to send out a survey to ask questions and get a better feel for what staff require training on.

    Although my mind is drawing a blank on what questions to ask in the survey.


    If anyone has any feed ideas i'd much appreciate it

    One at the forefront of my mind

    How confident are you using the internet? How private do you think you are on the internet?

    (As mentioned in another thread, I'm going to get staff here to look themselves up using 123people.com next week. One or two will have a nasty surprise as I've already checked some of them out. I shan't be embarrassing individuals... just letting them log on and look up)

    i'd explain......

    the most frequent question i get ( believe it or not) is "how do i copy x from my memory stick to x?"

    after sighing, i explain firstly that windowS is plural, and you need a source, and destination window open, and then select item(s)-edit+copy, click destination window,-edit+paste.
    any other method i've tried other than the above seems to melt their brain, and i get gestures of 'way above my head' type thing.

    What programs do you use the most?
    What programs would you like to use?
    What things would you like to be able to do with ict in your class?
    What areas of ICT do you feel least comfortable with?
    Are you comfortable and confident asking for help?
    Who would you usually ask for help? < find clued up teachers
    What areas of ICT do you dislike the most and why?

    Printer? I don't even have one mapped usually, I find paper distastefull and printers even more so

    But seriously if you can get even some good responces to open ended questions then you will end up finding out a lot more about what is actually needed and may even pick up some good ideas. I would also be tempted to ask them what type of training notes they like best.

    We have just conducted an IT skills audit for staff. I have attached a copy fo the questions they where asked. They answered the question with a number between 1 and 5 with 1 being useless and 5 very competant.

    I hope this helps.

    Will be doing this soon...

    Going to use a 1-4 scale (means they have to choose a negative or a positive), as above with general tasks. Won't ask for a name, but will ask for a dept (3 depts with several different IT skillsets in each).

    Try not to ask open ended questions, and keep them to "yes/no", "1-4".
