Showcasing advanced research from over 30 expert sociologists, this dynamic Handbook explores a wide range of cutting-edge developments in scholarship on teaching and learning in sociology. It presents instructors with a comprehensive companion on how to achieve excellence in teaching, both in individual courses and across the undergraduate sociology curriculum.

Divided into three distinct sections, the Handbook pinpoints critical aspects of teaching sociology: designing, teaching, and assessing core courses; advancing sociological literacy in topical courses; and engaging with high-impact practices across the curriculum. Chapters further solidify disciplinary understandings of the core elements of the sociology curriculum, as well as the essential concepts and skills that sociology students ought to learn.

Offering extensive resources to help teachers think about and improve course and curricular design, their own teaching, and their students’ learning, this comprehensive Handbook is the definitive guide for achieving teaching excellence across sociology. Its timely and practical suggestions will prove invaluable to new instructors, seasoned faculty, and department chairs seeking to advance program quality.

‘Sergio Cabrera and Stephen Sweet’s Handbook of Teaching and Learning in Sociology offers a wealth of information about effective teaching from both established and rising voices in the discipline. While essential for those new to teaching sociology, anyone seeking to invigorate their courses will find an abundance of ideas here. An invaluable resource for SoTL scholars in sociology and related fields.’
