Teaching Note--Developing an Online Blended Learning Course on Psychiatric Diagnosis
Levin, Shelley; Fulginiti, Anthony
Journal of Social Work Education, v53 n3 p560-567 2017
It has been suggested that the task of teaching and learning social work practice in an online environment can greatly be facilitated if thoughtful attention is paid to course design. This article details the design of a blended-learning online course to teach MSW students the process of psychiatric diagnosis. First, the development of the course philosophy is discussed. Second, the choice of the VARK (visual, aural, read/write, kinesthetic) learning model is explained. Finally, the design of the course consistent with the philosophy and learning model is presented.
