Description
This dataset is about evolving understandings of social justice in a global-local interprofessional context. Students in the professional fields of social work, law, and nursing from the University of Maryland, Baltimore, and the University of Haifa, Israel express how they conceptualize ideas of justice and how their ideas change and evolve in dialogue with each other through the process of creating a visual record, with photovoice techniques, of social justice, and conveying that to each other. There are two datasets: one is comprised of 16 English-language interviews with students who participated in the global-local interprofessional course between 2014 and 2017; the second set is comprised of 15 Hebrew-language interviews with students who also participated in the course during that same time frame. The dataset also includes photos that study participants referred to in their interviews. The slides of a presentation on this study, delivered at the Annual Meeting of the Society for Social Work Research, Washington D.C., January 2018, "Learning to Focus and Focusing to Learn: Assessing the Use of PhotoVoice in Global/Local InterProfessional Education" are available at the UMB Digital Archive at http://hdl.handle.net/10713/8098 . There is a forthcoming article directly on the findings of this study.
