The School of Counselling, Human Services and Social Work invites you to a seminar with:
Dr Susan Kemp
Charles O. Cressey Endowed Associate Professor of Social Work
University of Washington School of Social Work
National and international priorities are exerting enormous influence on structures for and expectations of research and science relevant to social work. Shifts in the ways science is being marshalled toward social impact opens up new opportunities for social work contributions and present the field with demands for new levels of research competence and innovation.
Growing emphases on transdisciplinary, translational, and transformative research (Nurius & Kemp, 2012)* also challenge social work educators to envision the development of research preparedness as a “pipeline” process encompassing all points in the educational continuum.
This informal seminar provides an opportunity for frank conversation, across national borders, on social work’s preparedness to support and indeed amplify a robust culture of high impact, transformational science, including more confident, clearly articulated roles and skills in the contemporary scientific landscape.
