Join us for another School of Social Sciences Brown Bag lecture on Monday, November 15th at 12 pm with Soo-Yeon Yoon, Assistant Professor of Sociology, who will be discussing her recent research, Remote Learning Experiences at SSU: Leniency and Collective Disconnect.
In her Brown Bag talk, Dr. Yoon will discuss how college students negotiate the COVID-19 crisis, and what are the major challenges and unforeseen benefits of remote learning. Drawing from in-depth interviews with 27 students, we find that a handful of students find remote courses helpful as there is more leniency to online test-taking. While a small number of students mentioned that their relationships with professors have become strengthened and personal, lowered class engagement and self-motivation and reduced interaction contributed to the presence of collective disconnect among their peers and professors.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the fall 2021 Brown Bag Series will take place via Zoom. Please join us: https://SonomaState.zoom.us/j/
The School of Social Sciences Brown Bag Series is always free, open to faculty, staff, students, and the public, and provides a congenial interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of recent research by School of Social Sciences faculty.
