Training opportunities are provided for new field instructors each year. Periodic workshop activity involving all instructors are usually offered by the faculty once a year. All new instructors are expected to take the “Beginning Field Education Instruction" workshop series prior to or while providing field instruction to their first student. Instructors who have completed similar training at another school or faculty of social work may be exempt. There is no fee for this workshop.
The Faculty of Social Work has developed three training sessions to prepare new instructors for the responsibility of supporting students through their Master of Social Work education:
These workshops are designed for new field instructors and are open to Master of Social Work and Bachelor of Social Work instructors. 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.
In the form of interactive instructor presentations, large group discussions, and small group activities, participants are invited to share their experiences of field teaching as both learners and instructors.
Participants will be expected to complete brief readings and exercises between sessions.
Registration is open. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm registration.
