Future of ALiEM: Need YOUR input

The 2014 year has been amazing. As 2015 approaches, the ALiEM team has gotten quite reflective and thankful for the past amazing 12 months. We can track many things through Google Analytics, but there’s nothing like hearing from our readership directly to help us shape the upcoming 12 months. There are many innovative plans in the works, and your input would be incredibly helpful to help us tailor our priorities to what YOU want. We are a volunteer organization, made up of passionate, early-adopting educators, who are asking for nothing more than YOUR valuable input. Please donate 1 minute of your time to fill out this quick survey. Once you submit your feedback, you can see what everyone else said. The beautiful infographic results page by Google Forms is worth seeing too. Thanks!

Going forward, I now realize that the blog’s continued growth and creative strategies are rate-limited by funding.
