"Selling" A New Course or Program Proposal: Practical Considerations for Incorporating Student Survey Research

Gathering student input through a survey method to gauge interest is sometimes actively needed to help confirm that a newly proposed course would be viable in a given program and situation on campus. In such cases, how should a faculty member effectively gather such input when students have very little frame of reference for the course or its contents? After addressing practical tips that I have used for promoting (and explaining) a potential new course and also a new program in my area, attendees will apply those tools to a scenario for promoting a new course/program of their own to enhance an existing program or major at their respective institution.
