  2. Twitter as a Tool for Connection and Advocacy During Covid 19

    December 9, 2020 to 1:00pm

    This webinar, hosted by the Parenting in Context Lab, will present research on how social work faculty have used Twitter for connection and advocacy, before and after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The conditions of the pandemic have contributed to social isolation and stress among many social workers and the populations they serve. The role of technology and social media for social work practice are currently amplified. This presentation, drawing from data on hundreds of social work faculty, will describe how social workers can leverage Twitter as a professional resource for connection and advocacy.

    Participants will receive a follow-up email with information about accessing this Zoom webinar.

  7. Community Conversation - Field Placements

    December 10, 2020 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

    We invite you to a community conversation about field placements. We have heard from students that they are experiencing field placement worries and stressors as we move into (for some, our first) field placement this Winter. This is a time for conversation - ask questions, raise concerns, and talk together as a school community. To aid the conversation, space will be limited. (We know it's coming up soon, so if you miss it, don't fear! If there is a lot of interest in this topic, we can hold another session soon.)

    About the format. A few students and faculty have decided to try something different - smaller community conversations. Our hope is that this can take topics that lend themselves better to verbal dialogue off of email and into a face-to-face (or screen-to-screen!) environment. We will draw heavily on practices from intergroup dialogue and restorative justice.
