Creating New and Innovative Field Placements
October 27 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT
The TFEL project invites you to join in a roundtable on Creating New and Innovative Field Placements. The facilitators will share key findings from the research. The dialogue will focus on these innovative practices:
Practice 1: Developing placements with multiple agencies
Practice 2: Identifying new field placement sites and working with non-traditional social work agencies
Practice 3: Expanding virtual practicums to allow for greater accessibility and reaching remote areas
Practice 4: Exploring self-directed placements to expose students to a diverse range of learning opportunities
Practice 5: Interprofessional field placements for social work students to collaborate and learn with other disciplines
Practice 6: Green social work field placements that integrate environmental justice and sustainability
Practice 7: Increase the availability of Northern and Rural field placements
In the roundtable discussion, we invite member reflections to allow for sharing and dialoguing with participants about the study’s findings, and providing opportunities for questions, critique, feedback, affirmation, and collaboration.
Facilitators: Sally St. George (TFEL Co-Investigator, University of Calgary), Dan Wulff (TFEL Co-Investigator, University of Calgary), Sheri McConnell (TFEL Co-Investigator, Memorial University), Kathleen DeSousa (TFEL practicum student, University of Calgary).
