Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In this article we argue that the ethical use of technology-enhanced, practice-based learning requires teachers to attend to the affective aspects of teaching and learning. This is important in social work education as social work is inherently emotional and we have a responsibility to prepare students for professional practice. We reflect on our experiences of teaching a subject on interviewing skills, across face-to-face and blended modes, and explore strategies for managing emotion in technology-enhanced, practice-based learning.
