Connect with social workers around the country, while engaging in meaningful and unique discussions around your practice in the 21st Century.
The Future of the Professions explains how “increasingly capable systems–from telepresence to artificial intelligence–will bring fundamental change in the way that the ‘practical expertise’ of specialists is made available in society” (Susskind & Susskind, 2015, book cover).

Raising important practical and moral questions what does this mean for the school social work profession? “In an era when machines can out-perform human beings at most tasks, what are the prospects for employment, who should own and control online expertise, and what tasks should be reserved exclusively for people?” (Susskind & Susskind, 2015, book cover).
