A much-needed look at innovative and effective methods for creating virtual learning environments for human services

Web-Based Education in the Human Services reflects the vitality and diversity of Web-based courses currently delivered within human services. Unlike previous texts that have combined technologies such as Interactive Television (ITV) and two-way audio where Web involvement was minimal, this unique book focuses on Web-based models, tools, and techniques used in courses where the majority of the content is delivered online. The book's contributors emphasize the social aspects of learning, examining topical areas not usually associated with Web-based education as they remind us of the need to move beyond the similarities between WBE and face-to-face (FTF) approaches.

Web-Based Education in the Human Services documents a course delivery method coming of age in its desire to create virtual learning environments that incorporate a variety of techniques and strategies. These environments use concepts and tools beyond what packages such as WebCT currently offer, highlighting the power of designing a complete Web-based curriculum, rather than viewing each course separately. Many of the most successful approaches presented in this invaluable book don't involve sophisticated tools or programming, but the creative design of interactive scenarios, emotional content, and feedback mechanisms that reinforce the instructor's role as the crucial ingredient for success.

Web-Based Education in the Human Services examines:
adult learning theories
teaching practice skills through Web-based technology
how to bridge the gap between theory and practice
faculty perceptions of the effectiveness of Web-based instruction compared to face-to-face instruction
the accessibility of Web-based education
the significance of emotion in learning
Web-based delivery of a graduate professional training program
the creation, delivery, and evaluation of a pilot course using Blackboard 6
the development of a Web-based undergraduate child welfare course
the use of Web-based video clips for counselor skills training
the design, development, pilot, and revision of a Web-based social work practice course
an online format for agency-based field instruction
the design of a Web-based graduate program in counseling psychology
and much more!Web-Based Education in the Human Services is an invaluable resource for social work and human services educators, including education, nursing, and psychology, Web-course developers, and college and university administrators.
