The purpose of this Special Issue of the journal is to reflect on Sociology training processes, and their impact focuses on how to teach Sociology (either as introduction or general, or in its specialties).
Sociology is recognised, to a greater or lesser extent, as a scientific discipline that envisages specifically the social reality producing plural theoretical topics, formulating research problems within the context of these topics and building sets of principles, theories, methodical strategies and key results that function as models or guidance for research. In the models and practices of training in sociology, several elements are relevant and can be analysed, particularly the structure of study programmes and curricular units, the syllabuses of the curricular units, the teachers’ qualifications and competences, and the teaching/learning activities developed.
This Special Issue of Societies aims to invite the submission of original manuscripts (whether in the form of original research, systematic reviews, theoretical papers or even grounded personal comments) whatever the methodology used, so that this teaching is successful, in what it is a permanent challenge. To this end, the topics to be addressed, while not being limited to them, may focus, among other topics, on Sociology teaching practices at different educational levels, the specific contribution of the learning of Sociology for a sounder support in training in Sociology, and also in other scientific areas, and the legitimacy and prestige/representations of Sociology (or their lack thereof) in academia.
