Abstract

To develop social work students’ understanding of the global context of social work, an asynchronous video uploading project was constructed to link social work classrooms on six continents. Students in social work classrooms around the world video-recorded their responses to prompting questions and uploaded them to a project webpage, to which all classrooms had access. Asynchronous uploading allowed students to view and then respond via video to other students without concern for time zone synchronization. This pedagogical approach was designed and implemented to broaden students’ intercultural competence, perspectives on international social work, and awareness of global social problems.
