Reflections on Designing and Teaching a Social Work Research Course for Distance and On-Campus Students
Gibbs, Anita; Stirling, Blair
Social work educators are increasingly challenged to train future social workers who can both value research and believe in themselves as capable researchers. One way to achieve this is the teaching of a specific social work research course at a basic qualification level. At Otago University, such a course was introduced in late 2005, and early 2006, for both on-campus and distance (off-campus) students. This Ideas in Action piece reveals the thinking behind and strategies used to help future social workers overcome their reluctance about social work research and enable them to take practice-related research skills into their future work.
