On Thursday, March 29, 2012, at 2 pm, EDT, ICPSR and SSDAN will host the second webinar in a series aimed at integrating quantitative data analysis into substantive undergraduate social sciences courses. This webinar will feature, Dr. Rongjun Sun, Associate Professor of Sociology at Cleveland State University, who will discuss how he challenges his students in "Globalization," an upper-level elective course, to use Excel and easily accessible data resources to define and describe the wealth and health gap that exists between rich and poor countries today.
Participants will learn how Dr. Sun successfully leads his students through the investigation of topics related to globalization using quantitative data and methods. In addition to promoting a deeper understanding of the content, students taught with these methods improve critical thinking skills and develop a greater appreciation of the social sciences. Viewers will also learn where they can access some of Dr. Sun's teaching materials to adapt for their own use.
