  • mark my words service user and carer involvement in social work Academic Assessment
    Social Work Education, 2013
    Co-Authors: E Skourakirk, Bob Backhouse, Gerry Bennison, Bob Cecil, Jane Keeler, Dawn Talbot, Louise Watch

    Abstract:

    This paper discusses the involvement of service users in Academic Assessment as part of a second year module for social work undergraduate students at Canterbury Christ Church University in the UK. The three main tasks undertaken in partnership are detailed: designing an Assessment form, Assessment of student group presentations and Assessment of a written reflective essay. The paper starts by identifying key questions raised by the assessor team before providing a critical commentary on the process, and identifying challenges and learning points. The experience emphasises the need for a more critical and searching approach towards service user involvement in social work education in Academic Assessment. Moreover, the team’s experience suggests that such work is best achieved in the context of collaborative working relationships based on trust, with opportunities for team reflection and supported by training in Academic Assessment.

  • Owning (up to) Reflective Writing in Social Work Education
    Social Work Education, 2006
    Co-Authors: Lucy Rai

    Abstract:

    Reflective learning has an established place within social work education but there has been little debate around the nature and purpose of reflective writing as a distinct genre in the context of written Academic Assessment. Where writing has been discussed in relation to reflection it has been for the purposes of supporting learning rather than Academic Assessment. This paper draws upon research undertaken with a group of social work students and tutors at The Open University UK together with the work of Watson, both of which identify student difficulties with reflective writing. Research from the field of Academic literacies is presented to open up a debate within social work education about the place of reflective writing as a tool for learning and Assessment. In doing so, it shares the experiences of one institution, The Open University UK, of working towards greater clarity in the teaching and Assessment of reflective practice through writing.
