Risk Reduction and Student Safety
Student safety is of paramount concern. The Checklist I Practicum Safety and Learning and Checklist II Practicum Learning and Reflection have been developed to assist the field instructor and student with key components for the practicum.
Professor Marion Bogo has developed a 13 ½ minute video for Year 1 Field Instructors to explain the relationship between the first semester courses, Elements in Social Work and Social Work Laboratory, and Practicum I. The video is available at https://media.library.utoronto.ca/play.php?jbRrmfNib7y5&id=22838&access=public.
Bridging Class and Practicum_ Competencies complements the video.
