Training opportunities are provided for new field instructors each year. All new instructors are expected to take the “Beginning Field Instruction” workshop series prior to or while providing field instruction to their first student, if they have not already taken this type of training at another school, faculty of social work or as part of their degree. There is no fee for this workshop.
The Faculty of Social Work has developed two training sessions to prepare new instructors for the responsibility of supporting students through their social work education. The focus is on developing knowledge and skills to facilitate adult learning in field education and to narrow the gap between field and classroom, practice and theory.
Training sessions offer an opportunity to go deeper into specific, program-related questions and connect with faculty and staff. Lunch will be provided at all on campus training.
Registration is open for all on-campus training sessions. For fall term sessions, please register by September 19th, 2018. For winter term sessions, please register by January 16th, 2019.
Workshops for field instructors are also being presented in partnership with Renison University College. For dates and further information, see the Renison website.
The training will be facilitated by Associate Professor Cheryl-Anne Cait and the BSW and MSW Field Offices.
