Teaching Note--Incorporating Social Innovation Content into Macro Social Work Education
Pitt-Catsouphes, Marcie; Cosner Berzin, Stephanie
Journal of Social Work Education, v51 n2 p407-416 2015
The practice of social innovation offers promising approaches for addressing social issues. Although many social innovation strategies are congruent with macro social work theory and practice, some of the insights and tactics that have emerged in the social innovation field have the potential to strengthen current macro practice. Based on our experiences with the social innovation program at the Boston College School of Social Work, we focus on 5 aspects of the social innovation cycle and suggest social innovation content that can be incorporated into macro social work curriculum.
