It is a globally recognised aspiration for social work education to produce practitioners who have knowledge, skills and critical appreciation of research. This chapter reviews the international literature on the teaching and learning of research in qualifying social work education. It examines commonalities and diversity in the purposes of research training, what is taught, when, how, where and by whom, the key issues raised and challenges encountered. Findings are tentative, but suggest that integrative approaches combining research with other curriculum elements, formal with experiential, and classroom with practice-based learning, can nurture critical consumers and competent practitioners of social work research.
