On March 15th at 2PM EDT, ICPSR with SSDAN will host the first webinar in a series aimed at integrating quantitative data analysis into substantive undergraduate social science courses. This first webinar features Dr. Jim Jones, Professor of Sociology Emeritus at Mississippi State University, who will discuss how he has introduced students in his introductory courses to data analysis using US census data and simple analytical tools.
Participants will learn how Dr. Jones encourages students to tap their sociological imagination through the investigation of quantitative social data. In addition to promoting a deeper understanding of the content, students taught with these methods improve critical thinking skills and develop a greater appreciation for the social sciences. Viewers will also learn where they can access some of Dr. Jones’ relevant teaching materials to adapt for their own use.
