Ready or not ASA is upon us. For those of you who are pedagogically inclined, I’ve put together a list of events that you should check out. Mostly these are the ASA Section of Teaching and Learning events. If you spot other sessions/events that I should feature, email them to me at Nathan@SociologySource.org.
I’ll be tweeting from a lot of the sessions and I hope to see you at our Sociology Blog Party on Saturday at Johnny Foley’s Irish Pub. For more on the blog party check here.
