Abstract Title: Understanding educational transformation: Findings from a survey of past participants of the Physics and Astronomy New Faculty Workshop
Abstract: In the early summer of 2013 we administered a survey to all past participants of the Physics and Astronomy New Faculty Workshop.  Survey questions were designed to further investigate interesting findings from our qualitative longitudinal study of 15 past workshop participants.  Topics probed included: affordances and barriers to change, student resistance to research based teaching methods, impacts of efforts from the PER community, and issues related to the demographic of the individual faculty. In this poster we present initial findings from this survey.
