From "Producing" to "Consuming" Research: Incorporating Evidence-Based Practice into Advanced Research Courses in a Master of Social Work Program
Yankeelov, Pamela A.; Sar, Bibhuti K.; Antle, Becky F.
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v30 n4 p367-384 2010
Schools of social work have begun to explore teaching evidence-based practice (EBP) across their curriculum. Although the current literature offers ideas on how to incorporate EBP in foundation research and practice courses, the literature seems nonexistent on how to teach EBP in an advanced research sequence, which could clearly address the widespread criticism that research courses are unsuccessful in making the practice-research link more apparent. This article describes the transition of one school from a "producing research" curriculum focus to an EBP focus, which embraces consuming research. In the present article, the authors discuss the benefits and struggles associated with these two different approaches. (Contains 1 table.)
