RESEARCH/SCHOLARLY WORK/CREATIVE WORK IN PROGRESS

  • Principal Investigator: The use of memoirs in teaching social work courses. https://krasun.ca/apprenticeship/ (After teaching SOCW 4800 in fall 2018 I completed the creation of teaching resource with 100 memoirs for international social work https://krasun.ca/memoirs/. In a 2018-2019 academic year I plan to work with TRU Librarian and apply for RA work to categorize the list for international social work and create a list for teaching Social Work Practice in Canada using memoirs written by Canadian authors). Social work educators are continually looking for new ways to make classroom learning more inclusive of diverse areas of social work practice. Memoirs have been successfully utilized in educating teachers to strengthen their reflection skills. The use of personal stories in social work education is also becoming more prevalent in designing and evaluating course assignments to promote reflective and often transformational learning experiences for students. The research project aims to create a database of memoirs in teaching international social work course as well as social work practice courses in Canada to demonstrate the scope of the field. Another goal of the project is to find new solutions in evolving societies to address displacement, forced migration, belonging /exclusion and other social work practice concern in Canadian and international settings. The compiled list of memoirs that was already developed for international social work course with direct student input (please see https://krasun.ca/memoirs/ )  to address critical areas of international social work practice needs to be updated and categorized based on both geographic and practice areas of international social work practice.  The list of memoirs for teaching social work in Canada still needs to be developed. After each memoir is adequately classified, the research article will be published on what memoirs are available to teach selected practice topics in international social work and social work practice in Canada.
  • Principal Investigator: “Welcome to Kamloops” Newcomer Ambassador Program. https://krasun.ca/apprenticeship/ (New Initiative with Kamloops Immigrant Services. Currently developing curriculum for four seminars (1 hour each) for November 2018 to offer in Kamloops and plan to apply to TRU Community Engagement Fund to hire a research assistant to support with the program implementation). “Welcome to Kamloops” Newcomer Ambassador Program is a new initiative that is based on the success of “Welcome to Kamloops” course. The course was offered through the Faculty of Education and Social Work in the Kamloops community during 2017 and 2018 academic year for newcomers to provide essential information for successful adaption for life in Canada.  All the data collected from the Welcome to Kamloops course is available online: https://krasun.ca/welcome-to-kamloops/, The Newcomer Ambassador Program, is a one month program that uses “train the trainer” approach to educate future newcomer ambassadors in different communities around Kamloops, BC, and Canada. Students who complete the program will develop a resource guide for their community that will be available online and helps newcomers integrate into local communities.
  • Principal Investigator: Social work education around the world project:  https://krasun.ca/social-work-education-around-the-world/ . (In 2018 created an asset map of Schools of Social Work Worldwide and already mapped more than 1500 Schools of Social Work around the globe. Applied for Student Research Apprentice Fund to continue the project in the 2018-2019 academic year with the focus on Latin America). The Schools of Social Work Around the World Asset Map is an innovative way to connect social workers, social work educators, current and future social work students, and everyone who passionate about the development of social work profession and education globally.  The Google Map technology and the Asset Mapping community development tools were used to create the map of Schools of Social Work that is available and accessible worldwide. The current map includes more than 1500 Schools of Social Work, and the list keeps growing with the long-term goal to map all Schools of Social Work before 2020 (the year when the new IASSW census will be released). Currently, Dr. Kondrashov collected information and fully mapped all the Schools of Social Work in the following countries: UkraineTaiwanAustraliaNew ZealandJapan, and Switzerland (please click on hyperlinks to see the completed information sheets of Schools of Social Work in selected countries). The use of Schools of Social Work Around the World Asset Map has a potential to build partnerships and collaborations among universities that offer social work degrees and provide needed data on current state of development of social work education around the world.

Abstract: (Final Report will be completed by the end of 2018) Social work in Canada lags behind social work in other developed countries and some established professions in conceptualizing and assessing professional suitability. This 18-month research project is built upon the Applicant’s ongoing research in the past twelve years and is timely as the majority part of Canada still relies heavily on the education sector to carry out its gatekeeping function. This proposed project is aimed to engage the education, practice, and regulation sectors in the research process; examine the multi-dimensionality of and assessment of the entry-level of professional suitability, and articulate the roles of education programs and regulatory bodies in gatekeeping functions. The proposed project will use a Holistic Approach to conduct 60 individual interviews in the provinces of British Columbia and Nova Scotia. The anticipated outcome is to forward the evolution of guiding principles for models of assessment on professional suitability in Canadian social work
