Social work as a body of knowledge is and should be in a constant state of dynamism. No region, theory or model should claim exclusivity to the profession and new ideas viz-a-viz 'innovations' have to be viewed as adding to the richness of that body. In writing this book the authors aim to highlight how important it is, across the globe, to advance society via the classroom. The book's editors argue that one has only to summon the courage to challenge existing and dominant paradigms and models to begin to enhance the field of social work. This book shares a range of innovations that are taking place in schools of social work in universities in the Asia Pacific region. The book focuses on exemplifying innovation in social work and its associated scholarship.Nine-month course on social work was offered at the graduate level as a regular education program in 1957. ... The College of Social Welfare and Research Centre introduced three-year undergraduate program in Social Welfare in 1966.
