PILLAY, Roshini; BOZALEK, Vivienne  and  WOOD, Denise. The use of technology-enhanced learning (TEL) to facilitate authentic learning: Experiences of South African social work educators. Social work (Stellenbosch. Online) [online]. 2015, vol.51, n.4, pp.515-532. ISSN 2312-7198.

Pedagogies incorporating technology-enhanced learning (TEL) are growing in social work education. However, there have been few explorations of the effectiveness of use of particular pedagogical designs based upon authentic learning principles in social work education. This paper contributes to such scholarship on teaching and learning using technologies through the analysis of five qualitative case studies of South African social work educators in order to ascertain whether and how the principles underpinning authentic learning are present in their teaching practices. The paper concludes by arguing that the use of TEL in combination with the principles of authentic learning have the potential to support social work students become work-ready.
