Abstract

Fry and Marshall (2002, page 185) suggest that 'curricula need to be constructed with greater awareness of circumstances, needs, ideals and purposes if they are to attract and retain students and staff and be fit for their intended purpose'. This paper discusses the design of a Social Work module on "Effective Communication with Children and Adults", where the intended purpose is to teach M-level students to a professional standard of competence.
