Curriculum Building for the Continuum in Social Welfare Education.
Austin, Michael J., Ed.; And Others
During 1970 Florida's University and Community College Systems held a workshop to discuss the idea of a curriculum continuum that would begin at the community college level and extend through the upper levels of graduate work. It was acknowledged that any continuum involving more than 1 level of education should include flexible opportunities for admission, graduation, and readmission as long as appropriate. It was decided that some form of social welfare education would be a likely candidate for such a continuum, and the Social Work Education Project was developed. Social welfare is a vital area to growing societal demands and those responsible for the curriculum design recognize their interdependence. This document presents an overview of the problem as a whole, offers illustrations of the Florida innovations that are underway in such a continuum, and suggest directions that might be taken to realize this objective.
