OK Thanks for the feedback @Alison. Once yo’ve been through the entire course (about 7 hours of content), please loop back again and let me know if you still think this segment was too long given the remainder of the course content.
Admittedly, there are some situations where convening a volunteer research team may not make sense (when the survey must be completed in a quick timeframe, for example). However, I do HIGHLY recommend leaders get a team – even a small one – involved. This will result in a better survey questionnaire that uses volunteer language and focuses on some of their most critical needs. Forming a team will also pay off in the future by “baking in” buy-in to the survey results and proposed program changes to be brought about by the survey. Because they are in on the action from the beginning, you will be cultivating champions for change.
