The Future Of Social And Human Studies

Social and human studies is an umbrella term for a broad field of study which focuses on the interactions between humans and their societal environments. This field encompasses many different areas of study, including psychology, sociology, anthropology, history, law, political science, economics, and education.

Social and human studies are heavily influenced by many other fields of study. For example, environmental psychology focuses on how people interact with their natural environment; urban planning focuses on how human society designs its physical environment, and business administration focuses on how businesses are run by humans in society.

Students who major in social and human studies have many career options available to them upon graduation. Depending on the area of concentration chosen during their academic studies, graduates may pursue careers in government or politics; education; medicine or healthcare; law or law enforcement; or business.

The Evolution of Education

Although the pandemic has disrupted education all over the world, it has also presented an opportunity to rethink the way we educate our children. A virtual classroom is no substitute for face-to-face interaction and collaboration but there are several ways in which the education sector can be improved post-pandemic.

Students now expect to learn from anywhere. The traditional classroom setting will still be around post-pandemic, but students, parents, and teachers now know that learning can take place virtually too. As a result, students will expect to access their lessons from home or when they are traveling too. At the same time, teachers and students may no longer feel like they have to be on campus to learn and this could help lessen the pressure that they feel to go into school while sick.

Education needs to replace lectures with active learning. There are lots of ways in which active learning can happen outside of school, even if it is being delivered virtually. Some schools have already started doing this by requiring students to complete online quizzes and submit homework through online platforms such as Google Classroom. Students can also be encouraged to collaborate with each other on projects outside of a formal class setting.

Education systems need to be teaching skills that are relevant in our ever-changing world. They should help students learn how to think critically, solve problems and work as a team. Education needs to use formative assessments instead of high-stakes exams, which test narrow content knowledge instead of broader skills like critical thinking or creativity. Students should also be taught how their learning can benefit their communities and the world at large, so they see how they can make a difference even if they don’t go into a STEM field (science, technology, engineering, or math).

Education needs to use formative assessments, not high-stakes exams. A not-so-obvious change is the need to use formative assessments instead of high-stakes exams. Formative assessment can take many forms, from concept maps to peer review to simulations and scenarios. Students will benefit by seeing how they are doing throughout the learning process, not just at the end.
