College Co-Sponsors April 13 Film Screening “A Place at the Table”

On Saturday, April 13, the College of Social Work will be co-sponsoring the film screening, A Place at the Table, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., in the US Bank Theatre at the Ohio Union. Nominated for the 2012 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize, A Place at the Table discusses a variety of intersecting aspects of hunger in America, including households forced to make difficult decisions about either paying for food or medical care.  In Franklin County alone, it is estimated that 17.3 percent of its residents are food insecure, including more than 59,000 children. A discussion led by food-related community experts will follow. This screening is free and open to the public including all OSU and social work alumni, students, faculty, and friends. Other co-sponsors include The Ohio State Eminence Fellows, Office of University Outreach & Engagement, and the Hunger.FOOD.Health Food Security Initiative.



Dr. Joe Guada’s Human Development Course Reaches All Time High

Nearly 9,000 students have enrolled in Dr. Joe Guada’s Human Development course on iTunes University!


Dr. Guada is the first faculty member at the college to publish on iTunes University, but his course will soon be followed by others just as eager to make their courses more available to the general population and to support existing classroom instruction. Currently, there is little social work content on iTunes University and the college plans to establish its reputation as a national leader in this area.  


As an emerging leader in social work publishing on iTunes University, Apple just recently featured Dr. Guada’s course—which contributed to the spike in subscriber numbers!


Thanks for being the first to put the college on the ITunes University map, Dr. Guada!
