Signposting survey for academic and research staff

The Graduate and Researcher College (GRC) is asking academic and research staff to spare five minutes to help us understand current usage of digital resources to support them, as well as preferences for future resource types.

Our short survey will capture information about your usage of a variety of electronic content, most of which has been developed or updated recently, and all of which is designed to support you, both to perform your current role(s) and in your ongoing professional and career development. The survey will also ask you to indicate which types of resources would work best for you going forward.

Your input will inform our future communication plans and, in particular, help us to determine whether or not (and if so how) we create any additional signposting information, guidance and/or resources for researchers and research managers in the coming months, which would be accessible by the wider Kent academic and research community

Dr Alison Charles, Researcher Developer (Academic), said:

“New and recently refreshed resources developed by central and Divisional teams act as portals to a vast range of information available for academic and research colleagues. Please tell us how you are using them and what formats you would like to see in the future so we can continue to signpost the information you need in the most appropriate ways.”

The survey was featured in this month’s GRC Researcher Development Bulletin sent to all academic and research staff – please email if you haven’t received this. You can also access the survey via KentNet (Kent staff login required) – please note that the survey is open till midnight on 20 June 2022.)

Thank you in advance for sharing your views on this topic with us.
