Congratulations to Dean Nancy J. Smyth, Assistant Professor Melanie Sage and their collague on the publication of their book, "Teaching social work with digital technology."

Hitchcock, L, Sage, M., & Smyth, N.J. (2019). Teaching social work with digital technology. Alexandria, VA: Council on Social Education Press.


This book was written to help social work educators make pedagogically sound, rational, practical, and ethical decisions about integrating technology into their social work programs and across the curriculum. It covers a range of essential topics, from understanding digital literacy skills to ethical implications for technology in social work practice, from using technology in the traditional classroom to fully online teaching environments. Case studies, practical examples, and technology tips are integrated into each chapter, and checklists show how technology is integrated with the Council on Social Work Education’s EPAS competencies, the NASW’s Code of Ethics, and other social work practice standards and guidelines. Appendices provide a wealth of practical materials.
