Project Title: The Social Organization of Health Care Online

Funding Level: $4,024

Abstract:

The proposed project seeks to build on previous Curriculum Enhancement Grants to expand the online course offerings of the Department of Sociology and build the online-teaching competencies of full time faculty. This project will use the knowledge and, more importantly, the experience of the four faculty members trained under the previous Curriculum Enhancement grants, to develop Sociology 382: The Social Organization of Health Care as an online course in order to progress toward allowing students to complete a Medical Sociology minor entirely online. This course is taken by a large number of nursing students and students already working in the health and allied professions. Putting this course online will allow more of these students to access this course. Further, the project will build the skills of the Principal Investigator to allow her to develop future online courses.
