Hey folks, check out the great experience and write-up about one of our recent chats! Thank you Laurel!
How do you get social work students passionate about policy issues? Jimmy Young and I have an answer for you – live Twitter chats! We were overwhelmed with the response from social work educators and students to our live Twitter Chat last Tuesday, October 28th. My best estimate is that close to 200 people, mostly students from at least six universities across the country, participated in our one-hour chat about income inequality. You can read a copy of the transcript from the chat here. What I observed during the chat was that students were engaged in open, thoughtful and respectful conversations about the problems in our country due to the wide income gap between the rich and poor.
