Integrative Seminar in a Geriatric Consortium

Show Summary Details



Integration of knowledge and skills is a process essential for the education of social work students. This paper describes an integrative seminar designed for students who participate in a consortium, sponsored by the Hartford Partnership Program for Aging Education (HPPAE). The seminar enables students to deepen the relationship between classroom and fieldwork learning. Beyond that, this integration process teaches students leadership skills as they contribute social work values and knowledge to inter-disciplinary teams in their field settings and collaborate with others as they develop professionally.
