Practicing Research in Placements

27/06/2012 (09:30-16:00)

Email l.hudsonrhul.ac.uk to book your place.


Practice placements are important elements of social work training at qualifying and post qualifying level. A continuing issue in social work education is how to best integrate formal knowledge and practice learning in placement settings. Helping students employ and develop research skills in practice offers a practical way for students to integrate a critical understanding of theory and practice and to demonstrate transferable skills that enhance their effectiveness and employability. The workshop will be interactive and will allow participants to share experience and examples of good practice.
