It also served to ascertain faculty confidence, the extent to which different practices are used and, concomitantly, students’ experiences of these different practices and any teaching practices they would like to see in their studies. In turn, administrative colleagues were involved to gauge the rationale behind the use of these practices and relevant institutional priorities and foci.
