Thanks for coming

This is a professional development survey being conducted by the Center for Teaching and Learning at Korea University. The principle researcher is Kent Lee, a Research Professor at the CTL, along with Prof. Hikyoung Lee from the CTL and English Department.

The survey is done through an online Google Form. To begin, click the link at the top of the page.

NOTE: This survey is now closed, except to those who have been invited. At this point I am recruiting survey participants through professors, because I need advanced graduate students (at the dissertation stage) from certain fields. This is only open to those whom I've invited via your professor.


This survey is designed to collect data on the professional development and preparation of graduate students and professors. Much of the research in this area has been done in the North American context. This study will be one of the few to examine academic development in an East Asian country. Please note the following.

  • We will ask you some questions about academic and career preparation and attitudes.
  • This survey will take about half an hour.
  • You will receive an electronic coupon for your participation, worth ₩5000.
  • Your data will be kept confidential.
  • The results will be analyzed and used for research papers that will be submitted to international academic journals for research in higher education.


Your data will be confidential. The form may require your email address and/or phone number, so that we can send you the electronic coupon. Your name or other personal information will not be collected. Only the two project researchers will have access to this data. After the initial data collection and sending of the coupons, your email addresses and phone numbers will be deleted from our records, and the data will be analyzed anonymously. In our paper, we might quote some open-ended survey responses with deliberately vague identifiers, e.g., "a humanities professor noted that...". We will not identify respondents by specific departments, but with general descriptors like humanities, social sciences, science, biomedical, or engineering.
