Description

Anti-Racism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ADEI) in Social Work Education: Implications for Curriculum and Pedagogy

The Association of Social Work Boards released its Exam Pass Rate Analysis concurrently with the Council on Social Work Education rolling out the 2022 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards for social work programs. Together, they highlighted a problem in social work: the need for an intentional focus on Anti-Racism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ADEI) in social work education, practice, and research. This same demographic which makes up the majority of practicing social workers, who are then selected as item writers for future ASWB exams, are also the most likely to graduate from CSWE programs and pass the ASWB exam on the first attempt. This creates a cyclical and systematic problem.

Research supports the idea that centering marginalized voices and experiences in social work education promotes ADEI concepts. Product One, the systematic literature review, attempts to identify how centering marginalized voices in social work education promotes ADEI. Product Two, the conceptual paper, proposes an integrative theoretical framework utilizing Feminist Standpoint Theory, Funds of Knowledge, and Kolb’s Learning Stages to promote and enhance ADEI-focused curriculum and pedagogy. In Product Three, the practical application paper, an assessment tool is presented based on this new integrative framework with evidence-supported questions that allow educators to critically evaluate how they are utilizing ADEI in curriculum and pedagogy and make self-corrections as necessary. By empowering educators, social work programs are primed to positively alter the trajectory of research, practice, and the path to licensure.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn how centering marginalized voices in curriculum and pedagogy promotes ADEI-focused education.
  2. Understand how an integrative theoretical framework supports ADEI in curriculum and pedagogy.
  3. Apply this integrative theoretical framework to ADEI curriculum and pedagogy.
