Overview

Teaching Social Work Practice is a lively, practical guide to developing your knowledge and skills as a teacher of social work practice in an agency setting. Social work students learn to practise in college and agency settings, and this book will help to integrate the student's experience of learning. Teaching social work is different from practising social work, and this book is designed to help practitioners to develop their teaching abilities with students. The authors use a combination of exercises, activities, notes and further reading to guide and encourage the reader through seven 'modules', which include Anti-oppressive practice teaching, Models of learning, and Methods of practice teaching. Each module is designed to help you learn how to teach social work practice. There is an emphasis on self-directed learning and active teaching. The book also gives advice on collecting evidence of your developing abilities, and examples of how to demonstrate this in a portfolio. This is especially useful to people who are studying for the Practice Teaching Award. Finally, Teaching Social Work Practice provides useful digests of the relevant literature in the area of practice teaching and learning - helpful pointers for busy practitioners. Teaching Social Work Practice will be of interest to social workers who are considering practice teaching as well as those existing practice teachers who want to continue to develop their skills. College-based teachers and trainers will also find useful material. In addition, the book has much to offer social work managers who wish to develop their skills in staff supervision and staff development.
