Sociology Multi-modality Project

TitleSociology Multi-modality Project
Duration2 Year
Project Summary

The goal of this project is to redesign a pilot set of Sociology and Family Studies courses into hybrid and fully online courses to offer students structured flexibility in their learning, increase accessibility of course content, improve sustainability by decreasing commutes to campus and by opening access to courses for individuals with non-traditional schedules. The aim is to engage with pedagogical theories and evidence as well as what we have learned from teaching during the pandemic to redesign courses that will engage and challenge students in a modality that best suits their learning needs. In doing so, the project will enhance Sociology and Family Studies instructor and TA capacities to implement and support hybrid and online course pedagogies and strategies grounded in SoTL research. The success of the redesigned courses will be evaluated and used as examples for other instructors interested in developing additional courses in flexible forms.
