The Use of Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT) within a Constructivist Learning Environment to Develop Core Competencies in Social Work
Fire, Nancy; Casstevens, W. J.
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v33 n1 p41-58 2013
Achieving foundation-level practice behaviors to develop social work core competencies involves integrating learning across a curriculum. This article focuses on two phases of foundation-level course redevelopment aimed to support graduate students in accomplishing this outcome. The first phase involved restructuring the course to become a constructivist learning environment. The second phase involved the use of cultural historical activity theory to assess this environment and design additional components to better address student needs. (Contains 3 figures.)
