Engaging MSW Students in Faculty Research: Students' Perspectives of Involvement in a Program Evaluation
Thomas, Rebecca L.; Chiarelli-Helminiak, Christina M.; Barrette, Kyle; Ferraj, Brunilda
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v36 n3 p275-288 2016
Engaging social work students in research is challenging, in part, because of the way research is taught in the classroom and the need for learners to effectively develop connections between the "abstract world" of research concepts with the "real world" of professional experiences. This article describes the experiences of graduate social work students involved in a process and outcome evaluation of a community-based program. Analysis of student learning outcomes and the team-based model used to engage students in the evaluation are provided to put forth a paradigm of teaching social work research through direct, supervised, and collaborative engagement.
