Teaching Note—Innovations in Teaching Research: Learning by Doing

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The field of social work recognizes the need to evaluate one’s practice. Social work educators are mandated to prepare students to evaluate their own practices and be knowledgeable consumers of research. The goal of being competent in both of these is often challenged by the fact that many students do not initially understand the relationship between research and effective practice upon entering research classes. This Teaching Note was written to describe innovative techniques in a practice research course. This course uses innovative teaching practices including the use of freely available statistical software to teach students to analyze their data visually, descriptively, and statistically within the context of their practice evaluation projects that are conducted in vivo.
