Show Summary Details

This paper draws on the experience of completing a systematic review of teaching, learning and assessment of law in social work education. It reviews core elements of the process and questions whether systematic reviews as currently conceived for social work education and practice can realize the claims advanced on their behalf. The paper considers questions of evidence, quality, knowledge, dissemination and research use, and offers observations on the potential of systematic review to provide knowledge for policy makers, practitioners, researchers and academic tutors.
