Roundtable: MACRO-LEVEL PLACEMENTS
The TFEL project held a roundtable on Macro-Level Placements
About the Roundtable
The TFEL project held a roundtable on Macro-Level Placements. The facilitators shared key findings from the research. The dialogue focused on these promising practices:
Practice 1: Creating opportunities for “sector-based” practicum placement (e.g., around issues of housing/homelessness) vs. traditional one-on-one agency placement (may involve working in the shelter system, as an example, for front-line practice experience).
Practice 2: Creating additional macro-level placement options centered on research and policy that introduce students to a different level of social work intervention.
Practice 3: Having students involved in social justice projects or community-level events.
