      • SOCW 6396-001 SOCIAL WORK EDUCATION: PRINCIPLES AND SKILLS
        Most Ph.D. candidates either during the course of obtaining their degree, or after obtaining their degree, will undertake teaching at either, or both, the graduate or undergraduate level. Most will be appointed to a full-time university professorial position. Many social work professors are rigorously trained in research and other academic skills, but experience little or no preparation for the educational functions of the professorial role. However, this is changing and more social work doctoral programs are now including courses such as this one. This course provides a theoretical background to enable students to better understand the teaching task in education for social work practice and issues in the broader context of higher education which affect social work education and their future role as professors of social work. In order to achieve the course objectives, course content draws on theory from the academic disciplines of Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, Education, History and Social Work. The course also provides opportunity for teaching skills development through classroom practice and discussion of teaching experiences.
