Social work education at the undergraduate level focuses on preparing social work students for generalist social work practice. Educators spend significant amounts of time ensuring that their programs meet the most current Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards set forth by the Council on Social Work Education. Undergraduate students are immersed in the National Association of Social Workers Code of Ethics and are taught that research must inform practice. This Teaching Note will explore one program’s journey of planning and implementing simulation labs that specifically focus on strengthening leadership skills and the value of multidisciplinary collaboration at the undergraduate level by using simple tools such as SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) analysis and the RE-AIM (reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance) framework.
