Teaching Social Work: Blogs You Should Read
Through this series of notes, I will share links of Blog posts and/or websites I’ve found that I see as being too great to keep to myself.
These resources will come from a variety of areas of service and interests, with the common theme being a focus on issues related to diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice.
Some of them will be websites that I regularly look to for information and inspiration for my own personal growth, advocacy, and professional development, while others will be resources that I may have just discovered and want to get the word out.
Today’s Note highlights the blog Teaching for Social Work.
Why I like it
The use of technology is becoming increasingly important as time moves on. Although social media can be used to disseminate harmful information, it can also be used as a tool for social good.
In this blog post, Social Worker and Professor Laurel Hitchcock shares experiences of how we can incorporate twitter into Social Work education.
A sample from a post (or posts) from the site that I’ve read, and think you should too.
“As you may guess from my previous posts and research interests, I am a big fan of Twitter as a tool for professional social work practice. This list includes just some possibilities of tasks, assignments and readings all based on students using Twitter as part of a course. It is by no means a comprehensive list. What are some other ways you have used Twitter as part of your courses or as part of your social work practice? How have you used Twitter to enhance your own social work practice. ”
