SWU 292 will be offered as a pilot course in Spring 2017. Students in SWU 292 will explore the skill sets needed to deliver services to diverse populations. The course will offer a pre and post test that assesses their cultural competence via a self-report survey. The survey along with the final video reflection will be evaluated to measured knowledge gained and areas in which the course can expand in learning opportunities.
Completed Full Cycle:
Annette, I am so excited that the focus is on cultural competence-such an important topci for Social Work! I also like the use of the video reflection as an additonal measure. I am looking forward to your results!
This sounds great! How will students learn these skill sets? I wonder if you can also use the video reflections in the following semester to show students what to look forward to.
I am excited that this course has been created and look forward to your results. I would be interested in a comparison of video reflections beginning the course (the student's views, expectations etc) in relationship to the final reflection. Based on this course I would also appreciate a conversation of something like this as part of CPD?
Hi Annette! Is the cultural competence survey something you are developing or is the survey standardized and utilized as a validated instrument for measuring cultural competencies? Also, is the operational definition of cultural competence consistent across social sciences or are you defining it in a particular context? For instance, I am thinking of "cultural capital" vs. "social capital" - both of which may be different from the idea of "cultural competence". I like the addition of a final video reflection - great learning tool! Looking forward to following your research.
Hi Annette - I just wanted to follow up with this CATS. How are things going? I know you have this scheduled for the entire semester, but I was wondering if you were already seeing some positive results?
