School of Social Work (SSW) field instruction presents you with multiple opportunities to become a part of the professional social work community, where you will learn to integrate classroom knowledge with practice and develop your social work skills and identity. Field instruction provides an opportunity to participate in "hands-on" meaningful service and gain invaluable professional experience.
The SSW Office of Field Instruction (OFI) has over 550 fieldwork sites primarily in Southeast Michigan, but also in locations across the country and around the world with 750 licensed professional social workers who will mentor and help prepare you for a career in the social work field.
Social work students work closely with OFI Field Faculty to identify placement sites appropriate to curriculum objectives, learning goals and individual interests.
This session will walk admitted students through the process of applying for a field placement. All students should plan to attend one of these sessions. Presenters will also discuss how to effectively utilize the Career Center in preparing field application materials. The last 30 minutes of the session will discuss specific information for students planning to apply for a school placement.
This is a web-based session and you may attend from any computer via an Internet connection.
Field Instruction ends for the Winter 2015 term.
The Educational Agreement is due to the Office of Field Instruction for review.
The Educational Agreement is not considered complete until the student completes and submits their End of Term (Tab 3), and the Field Instructor rates the student's Practice Behaviors in Assignments (Tab 2) and completes and approves Tab 3. OFI recommends that the student submits their End of Term information (including their Key Learning Experience) to their Field Instructor at least one week before the due date to allow the Field Instructor time to review and complete their steps.
