The Dynamics of Field Instruction: Learning Through Doing.
Council on Social Work Education, New York, NY.
Both students and faculty in social work education find field instruction to be both rewarding and puzzling. Unquestionably, much of the genius of social work education has been an intermingling of conceptual and experiential learning. These eleven papers cover experiences in a variety of graduate and undergraduate social work field settings. It examines in detail students in a rural setting, students in a field research project, students in generic field instruction program, students in a community-based practicum, and students in a psychiatric setting. Two seminars are treated--the practice seminar and an interdisciplinary team training seminar. One paper details the development of a field instruction model for social administration and another examines a student-designed practicum. The role strain of both agency-based and school-based field instructors is another subject touched upon. (Author/KE)
