This paper explores the application of a ‘signature pedagogy’ in the teaching of critical social work theory and practice on a social work undergraduate course at a Swedish university. Feedback from students over four terms, together with a one-off reflection focus group, provided relevant information that suggests that a signature pedagogical framework has value within the discussion of teaching critical theory practice and methods. The key arguments and findings found in this paper center on the interconnection between a pedagogical framework, the course in question, and the feedback from the students. The conclusion points to the argument that using a signature pedagogical framework can provide a guide to teaching critical social work and practice on a social work undergraduate course.
