Social Work Field Education
Congratulations as you approach the final stretch of your formal social work education: Field, a course without walls.
Field education, the signature pedagogy for social work education, provides an opportunity to demonstrate learning through practical experiences, integrating classroom knowledge into "real world" situations simultaneously exhibiting a growing knowledge of self illustrated through emerging professionalism, professional boundaries, and a teachable attitude. Strengthening your skill-set in the four social work core areas: Engage, Assess, Intervene, and Evaluate is crucial in your field education experience as an emerging social work professional committed to the social work adage "starting where the client is".
