Field Education 1 Honours (SCWK3010)


This unit is a compulsory, full time field education practicum of 60 days. In negotiation with the field educator, students produce a learning plan that sets out what they expect to learn, how this learning will happen and how they will monitor and evaluate their learning . In addition, students attend fortnightly placement classes and peer support and accountability groups. These provide a forum in which to explore issues concerning the integration of practice and theory, approaches to investigating one's practice, as well as opportunities for support and consultation with other students and Social Work staff. Written assignments and oral presentations allow students to demonstrate their placement learning.
