Introducing Work-Family Scholarship to Social Work Students: The Development and Assessment of an Online Reading Seminar
Secret, Mary; Pitt-Catsouphes, Marcie
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v28 n1-2 p145-163 May 2008
This three-part article first presents an overview of a Web-based reading-intensive course that introduces work-family scholarship to social work students so that they can integrate the historical, theoretical, and empirical perspectives of this rich body of knowledge into their practice. Second, the authors explore the compatibility of work-family scholarship, collaborative learning, and online course delivery. And third, a continual course assessment based on specific criteria associated with effective electronic discussion is used to illustrate how the teaching environment of this work-family online course is being modified and improved. (Contains 2 notes.)
