The soc nerds are coming. The soc nerds are coming. ASA is just 5 days away. I’ll be posting updates on Twitter and right here as I attend session/meetups. Below is an incomplete list of the teaching and learning focused events (and a Blog Meetup & Party). For more details (e.g. where these events are held and who exactly is presenting at them), see the official ASA Program.
The Section on Teaching and Learning Pre-Conference Workshop This is a fantastic workshop to reevaluate your approach to teaching, pick up some new classroom tricks, and get your questions answered by some of the best sociology teachers around. This annual event does require that register in advance (and registration is closed for this year), but I plan to cover this event on Twitter and right here on SociologySource, so stay tuned on Friday. I am a panelist/facilitator for this event, so if you are planning on attending come say hi. I’d love to meet you face-to-face. Find out more.
