Field education is the component of the Social Work curriculum in which students achieve understanding of the relevance of theory to practice and develop competence in using values, knowledge, and skills.
NEW FIELD DATABASE!
Beginning in the fall of 2018 we will begin using an Internship Placement Tracking (IPT) database to support some of the tasks related to field education processes and procedures for students, agency coordinators, field instructors, agency mentors and the field education team.
IPT is being used by a number of accredited schools of social work across Canada and we are excited to be implementing it at Memorial. The IPT database allows students, field instructors, and field education coordinators (liaisons) to efficiently and effectively complete administrative tasks relating to field education. This includes keeping relevant practicum and contact information up-to-date, and accessing and completing forms online.
Information on accessing the database will be forthcoming.
