Overcoming MSW Students' Reluctance to Engage in Research
Harder, Jeanette
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v30 n2 p195-209 2010
Social work students are typically reluctant to engage in research. The research partnership model takes a service-learning approach, allowing students to work with data from a community agency and resulting in a final paper with all the sections of an empirical journal article. Use of this model in teaching social work research enhances student motivation, learning, and skills through hands-on activities within an authentic context, and by using group support with individual accountability, structured and incremental learning opportunities, and teaching from a strengths-based perspective. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
