Building Social Capital among Social Work Educators: A Strategy for Curriculum Development
Sugawara, Carmen G. Luca
Journal of Social Work Education, v45 n3 p445-466 Fall 2009
This article explores the role of human relations in the process of curriculum change in social work education. Social capital, the theoretical framework that underpins this research, explains how social resources are made available to social work faculty and groups for their own benefit. Using data from 88 surveys completed by social work educators, the findings are significant. In an age of technological advancements, human connections remain an important factor in influencing curriculum development in aging. This study also presents implications for social work faculty and administrators and discusses how best to organize social work conferences to promote curriculum change. (Contains 10 tables and 1 figure.)
