Workshops for Field Instructors

The School of Social Work offers professional development opportunities for the field instructors who participate in our BSW and MSW Field Education programs.  Information about workshops and programs will be e-mailed to field instructors and will be posted on this website. Watch for updates!

Beginning Field Instructor Course, in collaboration with CASWE

In partnership with the Canadian Association for Social Work Education (CASWE), a Beginning Field Instructor Course is offered to Field Instructors who supervise BSW and MSW students from Renison University College, affiliated with the University of Waterloo. This online, asynchronous course delivered through CASWE is offered every term.

Renison-affiliated field instructors who are interested to take the course will receive registration information from their student's Field Education Coordinator, or the BSW/MSW Program Manager.

Please contact Shella Zagada, MSW Program Manager for MSW-related questions, or, Bianca Bitsakakis, BSW Pragram Manager for BSW-related questions.

Thank you.
