When the COVID-19 outbreak triggered a global change from traditional classroom to online classroom, online education became an immediate necessity. The pandemic has created unforeseeable disruption for social work educators and students in developing clinical skill sets. Social alienation has transformed higher education from face-to-face delivery to a borderless delivery. In this chapter, we examine through the design of a small private online course on Narrative Therapy, the pedagogical and instructional evolution of clinical social work education in dealing with uncertainty and the adaptation of students’ changing needs.
