Conceptualizing the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning for Social Work Education
Grise-Owens, Erlene; Owens, Larry W.; Miller, J. Jay
Journal of Social Work Education, v52 n1 p6-17 2016
The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) has become a significant social movement. The newest "Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards" of the Council on Social Work Education explicitly identify SoTL as important in advancing social work education. This article considers social work education's role, relationship, and responsibility in relation to SoTL. Providing a critical understanding of SoTL's background, the article summarizes SoTL's history and current status. Next, we explain the rationale for social work education to focus on SoTL. Then, the article provides pragmatic steps and strategies for performing SoTL. The article concludes with a discussion of specific recommendations for social work education in moving forward in the SoTL movement.
