As part of the general move towards accreditation and greater professionalism, practice teachers (supervisors) have to be accredited and undergo some training and practice teaching. This handbook, commissioned by the North of Scotland Consortium for Education and Training provides the theoretical base that practice teachers need. It provides a summary of the theory underlying models of understanding human development and behaviour, and of models of social work intervention. Because of its combination of theory and practice it will be of equal use to social students and practitioners and practice teachers supervising students under the new Diploma in Social Work programme.

Drawing from her extensive classroom and field experience, Jeane W. Anastas merges the "practice wisdom" of today's social work educators with contemporary theories on instruction and learning. Built around a teacher- and student-in-situation framework, Teaching in Social Work examines the effect of social issues, professional norms and needs, and various educational settings on the interactions among educators, students, and the subjects they learn. The result is a singular volume that focuses specifically on teaching within the field of social work, identifying the factors that result in effective educational outcomes. Anastas draws on the theories and selected research findings of higher education and social work education literature. She illuminates the critical aspects of teaching and learning as an adult, the best uses of different modalities of instruction, and the issues of diversity that influence all aspects of teaching and learning. Her book includes guest-authored chapters on field learning and the latest advances in teaching technology. It also engages with ethics, teaching and learning assessments, and faculty work in full-time social work education.
