● Dr. Will Hamilton, chief assessment and institutional research officer and a part-time instructor of sociology, and his co-author Gabriela Hamilton completed their research empirical study, “Community College Student Preferences for Support When Classes Go Online: Does Techno-Capital Shape Student Decisions?”
It will be published in the peer-reviewed edited volume Education Reform in the Aftermath of the COVID-19 Pandemic. It is currently in press, but find the book here.
The purpose of the study was to better understand whether students’ preferences for various support networks during the pandemic—when all classes and support services were shifted online—were shaped by students’ digital skills and knowledge. Gabriela Hamilton is an assistant professor of economics at Hillsborough Community College and has been an adjunct at Saint Leo University for almost a decade.

View the journal here.
