Undergraduate Instruction on the Cutting Edge in Sociology
Duke Sociology continues to exhibit innovative and effective instruction in the undergraduate classroom. Lane Destro, Katherine Hyde, and Kenneth Spenner were recently recognized for earning student evaluations in the top 5% of the college! Their courses represent innovative teaching approaches, timely topics of study, and intellectually engaging preparation for future careers. Ken Spenner's MMS capstone course encourages creative entrepreneurship the development of team business plans and peer review of those plans Lane Destro, a recent Duke Ph.D., taught a senior research seminar on the impact of the recent economic crisis on working families in the US. And, Katie Hyde (Sociology and Documentary Studies) continues her innovative work in the ground-breaking field of visual sociology which applies documentary photography to describing and understanding sociological concepts.
Congratulations to Destro, Hyde, and Spenner for their outstanding work.
