Teaching Note--Using TED Talks in the Social Work Classroom: Encouraging Student Engagement and Discourse
Loya, Melody Aye; Klemm, Terri
Journal of Social Work Education, v52 n4 p518-523 2016
Focusing on TED Talks (online videos) as a resource for social work educators, this teaching note shares our ideas regarding the use of the online videos as an avenue for reaching students and encouraging discussions in the social work classroom. The article first explores the TED platform and then discusses using TED as a teaching tool. Finally, we share our perspectives and student voices on selected videos that can be useful in social work education, including references to specific Council on Social Work Education competencies and practice behaviors. The videos bring world-renowned speakers into the classroom, providing social work educators with rich teaching opportunities limited only by their imagination.
