IS Information Gathering and Exchange Committee

Charge

The committee serves as a centralized hub for IS committees in order to support collective data needs. Every year the committee will conduct the “Instruction Section Needs, Interest, and Satisfaction Survey” among the membership for feedback. That data will be made available to committee chairs for their informed planning and decision-making. The committee also will explore opportunities to gather feedback from IS members to complement the survey. The committee increases collaborations within IS committees, including working closely with Membership and Communications committees,  to help advance the goals of the Instruction Section through data collection and exchange.
