SAGE Partners With CSWE to Reward Innovative Teaching in Social Work Education

Calling all social work teachers! Applications are now being accepted for the 2012 SAGE/CSWE Award for Innovative Teaching in Social Work Education. SAGE and the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) have come together to announce a new award to honor and recognize innovative teaching in social work education. Two recipients (or teams) will be awarded and recognized each year for outstanding contributions to social work education.

For the 2012 award the SAGE Human Services Advisory Board has identified three themes it considers to be very important to social work education:

  • The use of cyber and communication technologies in education
  • Education for reflective practice
  • Promoting inclusion

Applications describing innovative teaching in other areas will receive equal consideration. The award applications are open now through March 31, 2012 with the winner to be announced May 1st. The awards will be presented on November 10, 2012, at the Special Plenary Session of this year’s CSWE Annual Program Meeting (APM), which will be held November 9–12, 2012, in Washington, DC.

Awardees will receive a complimentary registration to APM (one per individual award or up to two per team award provided by CSWE) and travel and lodging will be paid for up to $1,500 per individual or team by SAGE publications. In addition, the awardees will receive $500 worth of SAGE books or journals.
