GCC responds to the Coronavirus Outbreak. GCC has moved to remote online instruction.

Sociology Hybrid Instructor

Hello and welcome to Sociology 101 – Hybrid Edition!

  1. “Hybrid” means that this course will include face to face as well as virtual interaction. This means that:


    1. We will have FOUR *mandatory* face to face on-campus class meetings. (You cannot be enrolled in this class if you cannot attend these mandatory on-campus meetings.)


    2. This course requires Synchronous as well as Asynchronous methods of instruction. “Synchronous” means we will meet online in “real time.” Our “real time” sessions will take place on Skype Chat. I will provide an option of time slots that you may choose from. (The rest will be conducted on Canvas.)


  2. Similar to a traditional face-to-face class, a hybrid class will also include the usual weekly readings, lessons and quizzes to complete in Canvas, projects, and exams. The main difference with a hybrid course is that we meet on campus less often and "telecommute" more.


  3. Please note that this course is only 8 weeks long – so you can expect it to be quite fast paced!
