Working in a rapidly changing field

‘Development is the new word for peace’

Our Relationship with Social Media: It’s Complicated

There’s no doubt that a huge amount of our social interaction now takes place on-screen. Whether it’s emailing our professors that we’ll be 10 minutes late for class the next day, or following up with a friend from home who’s now 1,000 miles away, we’ve ditched face-to-face communication often for good reason.
