This study aims at developing and investigating argumentative and collaborative study methods for social work education in polytechnics in order to scaffold social work students’ argumentative problem-solving skills. These skills are needed in social work when various complicated social problems should be solved through argumentative discussions. The study focuses, first, on pedagogical online and face-to-face macro-scripts in order to support argumentation in studying social issues, and second, on effects of argumentative online and face-to-face role play methods on learning argumentative problem-solving skills.

75 essays, 216 online discussion turns, 260 minutes of video and audio recordings; 2-3 months.
