The Acquisition of Social Work Interviewing Skills in a Web-based and Classroom Instructional Environment: Preliminary Findings

Phillip Ouellette, Valerie Chang

Abstract


Little is known regarding the learning of social work practice skills in a
Web-based online environment, most especially, social work interviewing skills. This
article presents a review of the research methodology used to initiate a study to
explore the similarities and differences of two groups of students who were taught
interviewing skills in a classroom-based teaching environment with those taught in
a Web-based instructional environment during the same 15-week period. Students’
background characteristics and their perceptions of their learning experience and
skill acquisition are reported as preliminary findings.
