This webinar was a discussion and comparison of the data regarding Canada and the U.S and their relative states of field education. Major themes of field education were looked at in a Canadian and American context, as well as existing placement models in field education, and the impacts of neoliberalism for Canada and the US in field education. The above was discussed in the context of what these findings mean for the future of field education.
