Assessing Teaching and Learning in Sociology

| |
A variety of teaching and learning strategies and techniques inform our teaching in sociology. Some are disciplinary, applying sociological themes and theories to student learning and engagement. Others are anchored in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL), an emerging field that involves framing and investigating research questions relating to teaching and student learning. The purpose of this session is to explore strategies ranging from practices informed by student or peer feedback and reflection to strategies anchored in SoTL. This session invites works in progress and at completion concentrating on teaching and learning strategies and techniques from a variety of methodological approaches, including reflection and analysis, quasi-experiments, case studies, surveys, and focus groupsinterviews.

Canadian Contributions to Theoretical Criminology

| |
Criminology is a multi-faceted field that uses 'crime' as its subject matter but has no single methodological commitment or paradigmatic theoretical framework. Criminological research, however, is often dominated by work from the US, Britain, and the Scandinavian countries that differ from the Canadian context in significant socio-political respects. The main objective of this session is to connect and discuss research that advances our understanding of crime and criminal behaviour in Canada as well as criminological theory more broadly. First, this session asks what is distinctive about Canadian criminology and in what ways can Canadian researchers advance criminological theories. Second, this session questions what lessons can be learned from these theoretical advancements, and how these lessons can help us chart the future of criminal justice and criminology in Canada.

Organizers: Timothy Kang, University of Toronto, Daniel Kudla, University of Guelph

Canadian Network of Durkheimian Studies Research Cluster Meeting

| |
The bilingual Canadian Network of Durkheimian Studies/Réseau canadien d’études durkheimienne (CNDS/RCED) was formed in the spring of 2012, becoming a Research Cluster of the CSA in the fall 0f 2013. The Research Cluster is ecumenical in its approach to Durkheimian sociology as exemplified in our Congress sessions. We aim to critically and reflexively combine  empirical, theoretical, historical, and textual research together, with a view to egalitarian, emancipatory, and democratic  practice in sociology and political practice more broadly. CNDS/RCED activities are closely tied to those of the Laboratoire d’études durkheimiennes de L’Université du Québec à Montréal. Our 2019 meeting will discuss items such as: news and updates from members, membership engagement and expansion, communications protocols, website development, organizational matters, connections with other Research Clusters, a "Best Student Paper Award," publications venues, and planning for 2020.

Organizer: François Pizarro Noël, Université du Québec à Montréal
