Falk College is seeking a part-time instructor to teach SWK 671 Field Instruction I with Seminar- Virtual Field Experience (VFX) for the Spring 2023 semester (1/10/23-5/12/23), Tuesdays & Thursdays 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. EST. Online Live Two 120-minute weekly Synchronous Sessions w/asynchronous content management. Course Description: Supervised (simulated) practice experience to apply knowledge, social work principles, values, and methods and obtain increasing competence and skill for processional practice. Course co-requisite: SWK 601 Course Overview:
The virtual field experience is designed to build social work competencies through participation in purposeful simulation events that mirror real-life situations and which are nested within a simulated agency environment. Simulations tackle broad complex competencies by partializing them into component skills and developing those skills in a graduated/scaffolded manner. Students develop significant applied skills prior to actually beginning a live agency field placement. Students will participate in asynchronous and synchronous activities throughout the semester.
The virtual field experience is meant to complement the in-agency internship that students complete during SWK 672. This is a foundational experience intended to prepare practicing social workers to engage in social work practice.
