Final Report: "As part of the theme, the recipient of GIAR award presented on “Constructing a cultural competent experience using reflection in the classroom” The workshop focused not only on cultural competence but also on critical thinking and reflective writing using Bloom’s taxonomy. The participants provided overwhelmingly positive feedback on the acquisition of cultural competent skills, and stated that they will use the model in teaching on this subject. Also, the recipient attended other workshops on undergraduate social work and the new EPAS required curricular behavior indicators. These materials from these workshops will be shared with Social Work faculty during a-one day staff/faculty retreat in September, 2012 so that the information can be incorporated them into course assignments as desired."
