Learning Contracts: Misunderstood and Underutilized


Giới thiệu

Social works commitment to the principles of self-determination and empowerment has proven difficult to operationalize. When learning contracts in field education utilize both positivist and interactionist theoretical frameworks, they facilitate student participation and empowerment in a manner consistent with adult learning principles. As a result, students are better able to apply the concept of self-determination for the empowerment of clients and the profession. This paper examines the implications of both frameworks for learning contracts. The positivist tradition prevails in learning contracts, yet the interactional process is crucial to their effective use. Consequently, learning contracts are misunderstood and underutilized. 1992 By the haworth press, inc. All rights reserved.
