Social work education accreditation requires the completion of course work specifically around issues related to oppression and diversity within society. Educators offer a range of approaches to engage students in discussion about oppression and diversity from academic content and structured curriculum to reflective practice and experiential learning opportunities. The following describes a Master of Social Work course on oppression, social justice, and diversity offered at a western Canadian university that utilized a mixed method of teaching practices--including the creation of digital stories by the students in small groups. Beyond this description of the course content, students' insight into the impact of using digital stories for their own learning and application to professional practice around issues of oppression and diversity is presented and discussed.
