Graduate Social Work Students' Attitudes toward Service-Learning
Maccio, Elaine M.
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v31 n2 p163-177 2011
Service-learning attitudes among graduate social work students enrolled in a course on human diversity and oppression are presented. A survey was administered at the beginning and at the end of the semester to students enrolled in the course, which was taught using a service-learning approach. Among the results were believing that service-learning aided in meeting learning goals and higher overall satisfaction with the service-learning experience. This article expands the literature on service-learning in social work education and promotes the use of this experiential method in social work diversity curricula. (Contains 2 tables.)
