Applying Partnership Design in the Development of Continuing Education Curriculum for Professional Social Workers
Brandt, Diane L.; Christopherson, Patricia M.; King, Debra R.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v8 n1 p99-111 2003
This article will discuss the establishment of a "partnership" of two State of Wisconsin regions (northern and western); thirty-four county human service agencies; the University of Wisconsin Department of Social Work; and the Continuing Education unit on the same campus: the Community-Based Services Training Partnership for Adults (CBSTP). The partnership's purpose is to develop a carefully researched and designed curriculum training module that is outcome-based, practice-oriented, and designed to improve the quality of services to vulnerable adults living in northern and western rural Wisconsin. The article explores efforts at current program identification and problem solving, the establishment of an advisory board representing the state and county members, methodology, and funding initiatives. The final product of this initiative will be a manual that will include all aspects of the training curriculum.
