Description

Applied learning plays an integral role in social work education. From the beginning of the program, social work majors complete a required 30 hour applied learning in a school setting where they mentor children. In order to better prepare the social work and other majors for the learning opportunity, this semester a 2 hour mentor training (that is offered to community members who mentor in the Kankakee School District) was required at the start of the semester. This presentation compares the post applied learning feedback from last semester and this semester (preliminary) to determine the impact of the training on the students overall learning outcomes and general experience.
