Review of #SWDE2016

In case you didn’t make it to the Second Annual Social Work Distance Education Conference (#SWDE2016) in Indianapolis this year, there are plenty of online resources to make you feel like you were there…almost.

First, the conference website has a downloadable copy of the program from this year and last year (2015), and will soon have copies of handouts from this year’s breakout sessions.  You can also find handouts from last year’s sessions as well as videos from the plenary sessions.  Check back soon for this year’s information.

Next, Sean Erreger (@StuckonSW) created a Storify transcript of tweets from the conference, using the conference hashtag #SWDE2016.  This transcript will show you who was tweeting and what they were saying about the conference and individual sessions.  You can also search for the hashtag directly on Twitter to see the same tweets. You should also check out Sean’s video where he interviews three of the conference’s participants – Melanie Sage, Todd Sage & Linda Grobman.

Finally, here are some blog posts about happenings at the conference:
