In 2008, a set of items was added at the end of the main survey that asked faculty how much they emphasized student-led instruction in their selected course section. Across all disciplinary areas, 58% of faculty frequently allow students to identify course learning goals, 36% frequently assign team-based projects, 22% let students chose the course topic, and 15% allow students to determine the course’s activities and assignments. However, emphasis on student-led instruction varies across disciplinary contexts.
