Videoconferencing: A Way for Students to Meet Their Sociological Heroes
Glass, Becky L.
Teaching Sociology, v35 n3 p274-281 2007
This article describes the successful use of videoconferencing in a sociology capstone course as a way to introduce students to eminent scholars and authors across the country. The author begins by discussing the institutional context, and how videoconferencing fits with the departmental capstone philosophy and with her course goals. This is followed by a rationale for videoconferencing, a description of student and instructor involvement in course planning and implementation, and discussions of technological issues, unexpected issues, and student feedback.
