CSWE Study Guides for Aging-Related Films

Teaching Gero Videos

The Teaching Gero Videos are composite dramatizations of actual teaching situations recorded by social work faculty members nationwide. The John A. Hartford Foundation funded these videos for use during the Hartford Scholars Annual Teaching Institute at Stanford University. Five teaching vignettes were selected that may provide assistance in teaching about gerontological issues within required social work courses. Click here to access the vignettes.
