Teaching MSW Social Work Practice in a Blended Online Learning Environment
Levin, Shelley; Whitsett, Doni; Wood, Gary
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v33 n4-5 p408-420 2013
Blended learning is a newly emerging trend in higher education and is defined as the purposeful integration of synchronous and asynchronous learning to provide educational activities that maximize the benefits of each. This paper describes the development of a graduate social work foundation-year practice class in a blended online environment in which both asynchronous and synchronous activities transpire online. The course's underlying pedagogical principles are illustrated, and the perceptions of instructional faculty are reported in key areas, including engagement and participation, activities, and the challenges of technology, socialization, etiquette, and nonverbal cues.
