Welcome to another school year and to the first semester.
The opening of the new school year and the new semester poses a host of opportunities to learn and be better as a student and in your preparation of being a social worker.
Our course of Human Resource Development in Social Work is one of the new offerings of the program. In fact, you will be the second group to take the course.
The objective of the course is to assist you in learning how to maximize the biggest resource that we deal with - human resource. After this course you will hopefully see all persons you encounter, whatever their conditions are, as a resource especially the clients.
We have had debates about calling the people we work with as clients because this is a bit derogatory or somehow labeling. The things you will learn in this course will hopefully give you a new perspective of the people that we help. This will flesh out our belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
I have set up this blog as a venue for learning or platform where we can exchange knowledge, information, reading materials, and anything else that will help us learn together. This will also help you harness your skill as far as keeping abreast with technology is concerned.
I will upload here discussion materials, assignments, cases for review, activity guides, and others relative to our course, so do check regularly (as often perhaps as you log in to your facebook accounts, hopefully).
Let us enjoy learning together. I feel very blessed and very excited about journeying with you in this course.
