Stream 3 Applied Practice Research

Applied Practice Research

To facilitate the integration of research and practice in field education, students and postdoctoral scholars are being trained and mentored in applied practice research. This stream will examine research-based practica, and frameworks such as Research As Daily Practice, an approach to research in which practitioners are recognized and valued as researchers because they use inquiry processes to make quality decisions in their daily practice.

The working group leading this Stream includes:

Uzo Anucha (York), Julie Drolet (UC), Jill Hanley (McGill), Sheri McConnell (MU), Eileen McKee (UT), Sally St. George (UC), Daniel Wulff (UC)

TFEL practicum students from Vancouver Island University are conducting Virtual Focus Group Discussions (VFGD) to better understand the role of service users in social work education and practice. Recruitment is open now – click here for more details!


TFEL is conducting an international practicum survey to learn about the perceptions of social work field coordinators/directors across Canada regarding international field placements. Further details are available in both English and French.
