Faculty of Education launches alumni survey

Our Faculty has long known that our graduates excel in diverse and exciting careers locally, nationally and internationally. You are teachers, psychologists, librarians, policy-makers, counsellors, consultants, professors, research directors, and the list goes on. You hold leadership positions in many areas of education, public and governmental institutions, NGOs, and corporate sectors.

What we don’t know, but want to learn, is the true variety of careers our alumni have undertaken and how the various activities you participated in as students during your academic programs helped you succeed at these careers.

From November 1 to November 30, the Faculty of Education is conducting a survey to gain a better understanding of your experiences during your program in Education, and your career path following graduation. Your input will inform our work as we reflect on how our programs meet the needs of our students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

We encourage you to complete this short survey, regardless of when you graduated or how many degrees you earned with us. You can choose to remain anonymous, or you can provide your name and contact information at the end of the survey if you would like to be entered in a prize draw. You can also indicate if you would be willing to have us contact you for a follow-up phone interview, so you can share your thoughts about your studies in Education in greater depth.

If you have any questions about the survey, please send them to edalumni@ualberta.ca. We look forward to hearing from you and using your feedback to help prepare future generations of Education graduates for a variety of exciting careers.
