The fall semester is well underway, this means most social work students should be starting their 2019-2020 field placements. This week we’re chatting about getting the most out of your field placement.
While this chat is focusing on field placements we hope those of you who have completed your degree will also attend to offer advice and share your field experiences as well. The chat starts at 9:00 PM EST/6:00 PM PST. Chat partner Rachel West (@poliSW) is hosting.
Q1a. Were you able to secure the type of placement you wanted?
Q1b. How hands-on was your program in matching you with a field placement?
Q2a: What expectations did/do you have going into field?
Q2b: How have those expectations aligned with reality?
Q3: Share a memorable lesson/experience/ah-ha moment form field.
Q4: For those who completed field placements: Looking back at your field placements what do you wish you had known?
