  • 128 Pages

Overview

In THE SOCIAL WORK PORTFOLIO, the authors emphasize that learning how to learn and continuing to learn are fundamental processes for professional social workers in the twenty-first century. The text provides students with a tool to plan, assess, and document the nature, scope, and quality of learning during--and following--formal university study. The book is intended to help students to develop their own social work portfolio.

"The strength is that it addresses a very specific learning tool that is very critical in helping a student process from a student to a professional. It helps a professional person to re-examine their learning experiences and place their learning into a marketable (as well as reflective) tool."

"I would describe it as a manual for portfolio based education and assessment with some very useful tools for students."
