Half of sociology departments are offering at least one course online, and most are using more than one new technology teaching tool in classrooms, according to a new survey. The survey, by the American Sociological Association, was conducted of the chairs of departments that award bachelor’s degrees in the field, and responses were obtained from 645 of 1,025 potential respondents. The association periodically conducts such surveys, and focused on technology this year, in light of the widespread public discussion of new methods of teaching and learning. While much of that discussion has noted the way fields such as business or computer science use technology for teaching, the sociologists’ survey suggests considerable change in a traditional liberal arts discipline.
