Reducing Research Anxiety among MSW Students
Einbinder, Susan Dana
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v34 n1 p2-16 2014
Research anxiety significantly declined in a diverse sample of 59 MSW students in their first-year hybrid online research course in which the instructor used an array of innovative educational techniques empirically proven to reduce this phenomenon. The pretest/posttest study, the standardized survey instruments used, and a summary of these techniques are described. This approach offers a way to help students overcome their fears, develop confidence in their abilities, and master basic components of research methodology, which, in turn, may increase the likelihood that they will participate in evidence-based practices and other research-related activities after they graduate.
