Social Work Book Club

The School of Social and International Studies at the University of Bradford are involved in a national book club, initially started at the University of Central Lancashire, that uses Twitter to bridge different universities across the country.

This has been an innovative idea that many social work students and social workers are using to aid their learning and continuous professional development.  Using books in this way has allowed for the sharing of new ideas, themes but bringing together academics, students and professionals across the country. This is mainly achieved through the medium of Twitter. 

The book club is being used as an aid to the learning of social worker students but also prospective social worker students to assist in introducing them to the themes and ideas that they will be exploring during their social work training.
