Tools, techniques and methods of the creative social work educator

A core aim of the journal is:

To provide an opportunity for the expression of new ideas and proposals on the structure and content of social care and social work education, training and development as well as for the exploration of difficult or contentious issues …

The journal traditionally focuses upon peer reviewed full length articles. This special edition seeks to offer a platform for shorter pieces which focus upon the ‘practice’ of social work education. The aim is to encourage the sharing of ideas and/or ‘artefacts’ that have been successful in educational settings including field based settings – this could take many forms including (but not exclusively):

  • Direct sharing of a particular ‘artefact’: this may be particular exercises, ways of delivering sessions or assessments that work well.
  • Examples of films, novels, music and art generally that have been proven useful in raising relevant social work related issues, what these issues are and the way these artistic expressions have been used.
  • Reviews of significant textbooks that have been used – this may very well include older texts that have inspired the current generation of educators, rather than contemporary book reviews.

The examples need to focus upon the artefact itself and where reviews of films, books etc. are used the emphasis is not on the book review but it must be in the context of what it brought to the teaching or pedagogy.

We would anticipate that each contribution is no more than 2,000 – 2,500 words. Our aim is to encourage educators to share their practice to a wider audience, freed form the constraints of traditional academic convention.

The edition will serve to relaunch the journal’s commitment to ‘ideas in action’, which could then become a regular feature.
