Discussion 1: Translating Knowledge From an Evaluation Study
Instructors often comment that they learn much more about their subject matter when they begin to teach it. When they try to explain the topic to someone else, they begin to connect concepts in new ways. They anticipate questions that students might ask and consider different viewpoints. Thus, there is not only external value in guiding or instructing others; there is internal value for you as well. This idea of instruction-as-growth can be directly applied to the disseminating of research. The results of an evaluation do not serve a purpose without being shared, either within the organization or more broadly across the social work discipline. Such sharing facilitates critical thinking and potential application to practice.For this Discussion, you assume the role of a social worker who is instructing their colleagues on the results of a particular evaluation study, and giving their recommendation about whether the organization should consider adopting the program or practice.Answer the following questions
Respond two colleagues who chose a different evaluation study.1. Provide respectful feedback. Identify strengths in their analyses and/or presentation strategies.
2. Ask a question about the study that is not answered within the slides and that your colleague can use to improve their current presentation.
