Social Sciences Speaker's Series
October 3, 2008
This year's theme is Youth in Canadian Society with an initial presentation of Student Disengagement and Disaffect, an issue that has become an epidemic in colleges and universities across the province. The presentation will discuss and analyse the trend from a sociological perspective in an attempt to answer questions such as: What is student disengagement and disaffection? Why are Ontario college students disengaged? And how can we solve or alleviate the problem?
Speakers are Dr. Amanda Zavitz-Gocan, coordinator of Social Science in the School of Language and Liberal Studies and Shannon Maheu, a partial load professor at Fanshawe and expert in human development.
Join us for the first presentation on Thursday, October 9, 2008, 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. in room D1060, London campus.
