SWTP310 Social Work Field Education 1

Teaching organisation

A variety of teaching and learning strategies such as lectures, tutorials, workshops, laboratory classes and self-directed packages may be utilised to introduce and explore theory and practice of social work.

Unit rationale, description and aim

The unit will introduce social work students to the practice of community development work through an examination of both the theoretical underpinnings of this practice method and the skills required to work effectively with communities. The unit will enable students to critically analyse community development work from a variety of perspectives both within Australia and in international contexts. Emphasis will be given to students applying the theories of community work through their engagement with local community projects. This experiential focus will also provide students with an opportunity to develop a range of community work skills and explore the ethical and value issues that can arise in this area of practice.
