Problem based learning - challenges and opportunities

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The opportunities and challenges presented by the new Framework for Social Work Education in Scotland (2003) which required the development of new Honours level qualifying programmes was welcome and timely. For a number of years the future of social work education had been under review and it was with some frustration that many academic staff and departments throughout Scotland carried on teaching a programme which was in some substantial need of change and development. For many years there had been calls for a graduate profession and for deficits in the existing programmes to be redressed. When this opportunity came to be a reality our collective wish in Glasgow School of Social Work was to create a programme of teaching and learning which would truly reflect the challenges of contemporary social work practice and would allow us to better prepare new workers to be ready to practice.
