Mask Making in Human Services Education: A Case for Student Engagement
Lashewicz, Bonnie; McGrath, Jenny; Smyth, Maria
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v34 n2 p182-198 2014
This article is an examination of strategies for engaging students in programs of human services education. We describe an in class mask-making activity, used by three human services instructors at an undergraduate university in western Canada, as a means of engaging students to grow in individual and collaborative awareness and skills. We present a survey study, conducted with students who have taken part in mask making, to examine their perspectives on the impact of the activity on their learning. We conclude with a discussion of applicability of mask making, particularly for students learning and working as part of diverse groups.
