Evaluating a Teaching Module on Ethically Responsible Evidence-Based Practice Decision Making in an Advanced Micro Practice Course
Wong, Rose
Journal of Social Work Education, v53 n2 p240-259 2017
This article adds to the growing body of literature on the use of evidence-based practice (EBP) in social work. Specifically, it examines a 9-hour EBP educational model designed to prepare MSW students for appropriate decision-making strategies in working with multicultural client populations. The model places emphasis on identification and application of critical thinking skills for micro- and mezzo-level practice in urban social work systems. It moves beyond traditional research approaches and emphasizes community-based and emic approaches for generating evidence appropriate for ethnic minority populations. Students' written assignments (N = 80) demonstrated the model's pedagogical value as a learning strategy for applying EBP. Students' evaluations demonstrated the model's value in sensitizing students to the importance of becoming ethically responsible research consumers.
