Description: The TFEL project invites you to join in a roundtable on Macro-Level Placements. The facilitators will share key findings from the research. The dialogue will focus 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.
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: Julie Mann-Johnson (TFEL Co-Investigator, University of Calgary), Jill Hanley (TFEL Co-Investigator, McGill University), Jarrod Ross (TFEL Practicum Student, University of Toronto), Elizabeth Tettman (TFEL Student Research Assistant, University of Toronto), Missa Mvuezolo (TFEL Practicum Student, University of Calgary).
