The Implicit Curriculum in Social Work Education: The Culture of Human Interchange
Bogo, Marion; Wayne, Julianne
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v33 n1 p2-14 2013
This article focuses on the culture of human interchange, which is included as a component of the implicit curriculum in the current EPAS. It presents the use of the implicit curriculum concept in teacher and medical education as a context for its application to social work education. The authors argue that professional behaviors taught in the explicit curriculum of the classroom need to be consciously reinforced in the many venues and through the ongoing interpersonal relations throughout the educational environment. The article identifies the challenges that movement in this direction would create but which the implicit curriculum standard mandates us to address.
