Two open-ended surveys to gauge practitioner/academic attitudes
To gather the baseline, I need your response to one of two surveys. Each survey is designed for a different audience:
These surveys contain open-ended questions designed to capture, in an unbiased way, the thoughts and attitudes that TC practitioners and academics have towards each other as members of the same field.
You can answer as many questions as you like. Your answers are anonymous. Trends in responses will be collected for a follow-up survey that will be administered in a more quantitative way.
