Collaboration among Social Work and Journalism Students and Faculty: An Instructional Model
Stone, Susan; Ekman, Eve; English, Dierdre; Fujimori, Sachi
Journal of Social Work Education, v44 n1 p163-172 Win 2008
The authors describe an instructional model designed to promote interdisciplinary collaboration among students pursuing master's degrees in social work and journalism. This unique model involved active collaboration among social work and journalism graduate students and faculty to create a single-issue magazine focused on a diverse range of social welfare issues. After describing the development and format of the model as well as requisite resources, the authors discuss emergent learning opportunities for both groups of students, including identification of role tensions between the 2 professions, deepened understanding of the social work profession and its associated roles, and methods for collaboration to advance the social justice purposes of both professions.
