Dr. Katheryn Pascoe (Otago University) is examining the continued professional development needs of field educators/practice educators in social work field education and is looking for survey participants. She has shared the following information about her work with a link to the survey:
Whether referred to as a practice educator, field educator, or placement supervisor, your role in social work education is essential for enabling social work students to connect theory to practice and develop their skills and knowledge before entering the profession. This project aims to map the training already access for fulfilling the role of a practice educator, the ongoing development needs practice educators faced, and any gaps in having these met.
If you are a registered social worker currently supervising a social work student on placement or have supervised a social work student on placement in the past three years in Aotearoa New Zealand, we want to hear from you.
The survey should take approximately 10-12 minutes to complete. Participation is voluntary and anonymous, and the survey will be open until 9pm on the 2nd of October 2023.
