Discussion 1: Introduction Video
When you attend the intensive portion of the Skills Lab in Week 4, you will meet colleagues and Instructors from the entire Master of Social Work program. Some may be familiar to you from other courses, including the cohort in this course. You may also be traveling for the first time to a city you have never visited, be away from your family and community, or be overwhelmed by what seems like a daunting, immersive experience.
You will not be alone.
This Discussion introduction, similar to your other courses, allows you to make connections with the students in this section and share your expectations for the exciting weeks to come.
Post a 3- to 5-minute video introducing yourself to the class. Please include:
