Teaching and Learning Processes for Social Transformation: Engaging a Kaleidoscope of Learners
Rutherford, Gayle E.; Walsh, Christine A.; Rook, John
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v31 n5 p479-492 2011
To tackle the complexity of issues associated with homelessness, an interdisciplinary lens with direct input from service providers and community members is necessary. Within a community-university partnership between a larger inner-city multiservice shelter serving the homeless population, and faculties of social work and nursing in a Canadian university, the authors developed the Social Justice Transformation Model. In this model, social justice is the why, co-learning is the what, and action research is the how. The model guides university students and faculty and agency staff and clients through teaching and learning processes of self-transformation, service transformation, and societal transformation. (Contains 4 figures and 1 footnote.)
