Teaching Note--Inclusion of Diversity Content in MSW Curriculum Using a Diversity Event
Ando, Sachi
Journal of Social Work Education, v53 n1 p72-78 2017
The Council on Social Work Education's Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards outline expectations for social work education to reflect human diversity in the learning environment. Exposing social work students to a diversity-enriched curriculum can help prepare them for culturally competent practice. This article presents an innovative approach to the presentation of a diversity topic to master of social work students. The Diversity Event was designed around experiential learning and guided reflection with the objective to inspire students to better appreciate the unique and rich experiences social workers and clients can bring to the practice of social work. The lessons learned from the event implementation and students' feedback are used to provide recommendations for improving future events.
