Enhancing Baccalaureate Student Learning in Research and Gerontology through Partnership with an Area Agency on Aging
Smith, Laurie A.; McCaslin, Rosemary
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v31 n1 p79-88 2011
Designing an effective research learning experience for undergraduate social work students is challenging. Similarly, although content on elderly adults is a natural fit in many parts of the undergraduate curriculum, doing so in a research course can be a difficult challenge. Described in this article is an undergraduate research course that has achieved both of these goals and also made significant contributions to an aging agency and, ultimately, its clients. The authors discuss relevant literature, influential factors in the course's development, outcome data, and elements identified as key to the course's success. (Contains 2 tables.)
