Teaching Note--Incorporating Journal Clubs into Social Work Education: An Exploratory Model
Moore, Megan; Fawley-King, Kya; Stone, Susan I.; Accomazzo, Sarah M.
Journal of Social Work Education, v49 n2 p353-360 2013
This article outlines the implementation of a journal club for master's and doctoral social work students interested in mental health practice. It defines educational journal clubs and discusses the history of journal clubs in medical education and the applicability of the model to social work education. The feasibility of implementing journal clubs in a school of social welfare is highlighted. The journal club received high ratings on student evaluations indicating participants thought it was a valuable addition to their education. Journal clubs align with the program mission and goals of the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set forth by the Council of Social Work Education (CSWE), and they can be an affordable, easily implemented, and sustainable supplement to traditional research curricula. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
