The CTSA Visiting Scholar Program was designed as a means to establish a set of
meetings between “visiting” KL2 scholars and their peers at different hubs. Due to the
COVID-19 pandemic, Phase 1 of this program consisted of 56 virtual meetings. After
the conclusion of this round of visiting scholars, a unique REDCap survey link was sent
to the KL2 directors and/or PIs of participating hubs. This was followed by two
subsequent weekly reminders. At the conclusion of the online data collection, 25
responses were received from the total of 27 hubs, for a final response rate of 92.6%.
The evaluation examines how well the program goals were achieved. This report of the
evaluation addresses overall satisfaction, any facilitators and/or challenges to planning
these visits, and any improvements that could be made to the program in the future.
The majority of respondents “Agreed” or “Strongly Agreed” that hearing scholar talks
was highly valuable to their own scholars/programs (n=21, 84.0%). Nearly all
respondents also indicated it was “Likely” or “Extremely Likely” that their hub would
participate in another round of the Visiting Scholars Program in the future (n=23,
The survey included open-ended questions, for which attendees were asked to describe
anything new they learned or the most helpful aspect of attending the Un-Meeting. All
comments are shown in the report.
