What’s Your Connection? Storytelling, Social Injustice, and Qualitative Research
“What’s Your Connection? Storytelling, Social Injustice, and Qualitative Research” represents a deep dive into storytelling and the critical consumption of media and all forms of communication purporting to hold the truth of another, and to tell the “all” of another’s experience.
Join Virginia to learn how her storytelling assignment uses transformational experiential learning strategies to provide online students with critical foundations in sociology, a hands-on qualitative research experience from the perspective of both the researcher and the subject, and an opportunity for enhanced bonding and making personal connections in the online learning community.
During the webinar, Virginia will guide participants through a brief interactive activity to demonstrate how this assignment gives students a visceral experience that forever changes their perspective on media and social justice.
