Education Resources

The Education Resources section serves as a compendium of resources intended to help programs and faculty members in curriculum development and assessment activities. Resource materials include advanced practice knowledge and practice behaviors related to the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS), syllabi, bibliographies, case studies, assessment tools, and videos for use in the classroom.

The search option below allows users to search for member curated resources. We hope to continue to expand this collection with the help of members with expertise in specific areas of practice. CSWE members who are logged into the website may submit a resource by selecting the  "Education Resources Contribution" tab on the lefthand portion of this page. 

Additional tabs on the left of the screen link to CSWE curated resources.
