10 Steps to Sustain Infusion of Gerontology across the Social Work Curriculum
Holody, Richard; Kolb, Patricia
Educational Gerontology, v37 n9 p791-808 2011
The authors and their colleagues have sustained infusion of gerontological content across their social work curriculum since implementation of their CSWE-Hartford Foundation GeroRich project from 2002-2004. Based on experiences in our department, we recommend 10 steps that include (a) responding to anticipated faculty resistance, (b) identifying diverse community stakeholders, (c) listening to stakeholders from the beginning, (d) keeping stakeholders informed, (e) targeted revisions of syllabi, (f) compilation of gerontological scenarios, (g) collaborating with the college library staff, (h) developing a film library, (i) using speakers and resources from internship sites, and (j) looking for ingenious ways to motivate faculty. (Contains 2 tables.)
