Education Resources

The Education Resources section is a compendium of resources collected as a part of CSWE initiatives and intended to help programs and faculty members in curriculum development and assessment activities. The 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.

We hope to continue to expand this collection with the help of members with expertise in specific areas of practice.
