Fieldwork Supervisor's Manual.
Bowler, Rosemarie M.; And Others
This manual, intended for community agency personnel who supervise students in undergraduate field placements, presents suggestions to aid the supervisor in providing the student with a valuable and rewarding experience which will also be of value to the agency. Issues are presented in sections reflecting the common sequence of events in a fieldwork placement, i.e., selection interview, contract formation, supervision and training, feedback/communication, evaluation, and closure. The process and purpose of selecting a student for agency placement are addressed, including suggestions for student orientation to the agency. The purposes and possible contents of a learning contract are delineated. The supervisor-student relationship is discussed and the developmental processes of the student in field placement are described. The importance of evaluations for students is discussed, and suggestions are given for evaluation standards. The process of terminating the fieldwork experience is also considered. Descriptions of fieldwork programs at San Francisco State University, a field placement agreement form, and a student final evaluation form are provided in the appendices. (WAS)
