You must be aged 18 years or older to participate in this survey and reside in the Province of Ontario. By entering the survey, I indicate that I have read the information provided and agree to participate.


The purpose of this pilot study is to understand educators’ perceptions and experiences with generative artificial intelligence (AI) platforms and tools. You will be asked to fill out an online questionnaire. The questionnaire may take up to 5 minutes to complete. No identifying information will be collected in the questionnaire.

Participating in this research may not benefit you directly, but will help us better understand major themes educators are experiencing with AI in Ontario. Any findings or analysis conducted based on this research will be published on this website and free to download. There is a minimal risk that respondents participating in the survey will feel shame, worry or embarrassment based on use or non-use of AI.


I have been informed that my participation in this pilot study is voluntary and that I am free to withdraw or discontinue participation at any time prior to submitting my responses. I have been informed that data collected for this study will be retained by the investigator for the length of the research and analyzed even if I choose to withdraw from the research. I have been informed that withdrawal after submission of the survey is not possible given the anonymous nature of the survey. Participants that have ethical concerns about the study can contact the Durham College Ethics Research Board at


After submitting your survey responses, you will be directed to a separate survey to enter your contact information to be entered into a draw for a chance to win a $500 giftcard. Your odds of winning are based on the number of individuals who participate in the survey. Your email will be stored separately from your survey responses and permanently erased once the draw is complete. The survey will close on December 31, 2023.  

The winner of the $500 giftcard will be selected in a random draw from eligible entries on December 31, 2023. The draw will be held 10 business days after the closing date and be conducted by an impartial third party. The researcher will contact the winner by email. If the winner has not responded in 7 days, the winner will forfeit the prize, and another draw will be held to determine a winner. The prize must be accepted as awarded or forfeited and cannot be redeemed for cash. Please note that in order to win the $500 giftcard, the selected entrant must correctly answer a time-limited skill-testing mathematical question.
