Teaching Note--An Exploration of Team-Based Learning and Social Work Education: A Natural Fit
Robinson, Michael A.; Robinson, Michelle Bachelor; McCaskill, Gina M.
Journal of Social Work Education, v49 n4 p774-781 2013
The literature on team-based learning (TBL) as a pedagogical methodology in social work education is limited; however, TBL, which was developed as a model for business, has been successfully used as a teaching methodology in nursing, business, engineering, medical school, and many other disciplines in academia. This project examines the use of TBL in a Human Behavior in the Social Environment (HBSE) class and how a convenience sample ("n"?=?44) of undergraduate students responds to this method of learning. The project addresses the implications for this pedagogical style as an innovative way for teaching the social work curriculum and preparing a future generation of social workers to be productive members of work-related and professional groups.
