Moving through Moodle: Using E-Technology to Enhance Social Work Field Education
Hay, Kathryn; Dale, Michael
Asia-Pacific Journal of Cooperative Education, v15 n2 p119-128 2014
At Massey University, New Zealand, the Moodle program was introduced as an institutional innovation to support and enhance teaching and learning. Within the social work field education program Moodle has been embraced as an opportunity to creatively advance current educational practices. The development of a meta-site for field education enables greater connections between the university and the community. This paper explores the perspectives of field educators and academic staff on the opportunities and challenges associated with on-line learning in field education. Specifically it assesses the value of this Moodle site and considers ways in which the current innovation can be further developed.
