Social work education has been one of the disciplines showing high proliferation tendency. Since the Second World War, social work education owes much to the contributions of United Nations. The main perspective was to educate manpower for social welfare sector. The decision of United Nations Commission for Social Development that it is a profession having own distinctive functions and educational requirements was a milestone in professionalization of sw. As a result of these advancements, like in many developing countries, social work education in Turkey was led by external dynamics rather than internal dynamics. Basing my ideas on these facts, in this globalized world, social work education should follow two dimensions: First, it should have international perspective educating world-scale social worker, and have local aspect meeting regional requirements which Turkey needs most now. In this study, new methods and approaches are proposed and discussed to engage students with global and regional needs and challenges.
