Welcome to Managing Around, the podcast exploring the intersection of social work and management. In this episode, I aim to provide valuable insights and fresh perspectives, encouraging you to develop higher education didactics for social work management. I believe that an exchange of ideas and the sharing of knowledge are essential for achieving quality development in the field of social work and for preparing students to meet the so-called “Global Challenges”. Whether you are a social work educator, practitioner, or student, this podcast is for you. Join us as we dive deeper into this important topic and explore how to create a more effective and inclusive approach to social work management education.
Today, I will first discuss a specific plant and case: the German Social Economy. This is just one specific cultural and historical form of the voluntary sector. This will help us to understand the requirements for future social work managers in this field. We need to think not only about the plant but also about the greenhouse where plants can grow. The greenhouses are the living laboratories, such as our Higher Education Institutions, that offer boundless opportunities for discovery, innovation, and sustainability. When it comes to educating the next generation of social work managers, we must remember that it’s a collaborative effort that requires a multi- and transdisciplinary approach.
