Description: Based on Jeane W. Anastas's extensive experience teaching advanced programs in social work, this text merges the "practice wisdom" of today's social work educators with contemporary theories on student learning and effective classroom instruction. Built around a teacher- and student-in-situation framework, this book examines how social issues, professional norms and needs, and various educational settings affect the interactions among educators, students, and the subjects they must learn.Anastas argues that mastering this dynamic is crucial to achieving excellence in social work education. Her approach synthesizes theory and selected research findings extracted from higher education literature and social work education, illuminating critical aspects of teaching and learning as an adult, the best uses of different modalities of instruction, and the diversity issues that influence all aspects of teaching and learning. The book includes guest-authored chapters on field learning and the latest advances in teaching technology. Anastas also addresses ethical issues, assessments of teaching and learning, and the nature of faculty work in full-time social work education. The result is one of the first volumes to treat teaching specifically within the field of social work, zeroing in on the critical factors that foster effective educational outcomes.
