1
CALSWEC Field Initiative USC School of Social Work
  • Group Seminar Field Instruction Model

2
PURPOSE
  • 1. Delivery of consistent competency based
  • field instruction and augmented case
    supervision.
  • 2. Provision of consistent child welfare peer
    group experience
  • 3. Strengthening of collaboration between the
    University and Public Child Welfare Agency.

3
Model Selection
  • Group Supervision Seminar Model was selected.
  • 1. Students receive case supervision in field
    placement, but this supervision does not
    necessarily incorporate all the CALSWEC
    Competencies
  • 2. This model integrates into the curriculum
    CALSWEC Competencies and EPAS Standards
  • 3. This model develops a support network for
    students and allows for sharing of field
    experiences
  • 4. This model allows students to learn and
    practice skills in a supportive group setting and
    provides rich professional coaching opportunities
  • 5. It reinforces students commitment to the
    CALSWEC mission, and centralizes the importance
    of CALSWEC in the MSW program.

PILOT Model Description Group Supervision Model
  • Foundation Year students met in a group seminar
    every other week .
  • Staffing Three CALSWEC Field Faculty with
    extensive backgrounds in Public Child Welfare
    served as seminar instructors.
  • A competency based field curriculum was
    delivered.
  • Evaluation of effectiveness was done through a
    vignette based assessment (pre and post test) and
    a student satisfaction survey.

5
PILOT PROJECT 2010/2011
  • 1. Developed foundation year group field
    instruction seminar
  • 2. Identified and integrated CALSWEC
    competencies into the field seminar curriculum
  • 3. Developed and administered vignette based pre
    and post test (with consultation from CALSWEC
    researcher and Public Child Welfare field
    instructors)
  • 4. Developed and administered Student
    Satisfaction Survey

LESSONS LEARNED
  • 1. It is critical for students to have a place
    to process their knowledge, assumptions,
    feelings, and fears about their work with clients
    in the child welfare system
  • 2. It is important to link the language used in
    the classroom to the actual language used in the
    vignette evaluation rubric
  • 3. More time is needed in the field seminar
    to adequately address the identified content and
    allow time for students to process issues and
    feelings.

7
  • 4. It is essential that community providers and
    consumers be integrated into the classroom
    experience as guest lecturers
  • 5. The use of multi media presentations greatly
    enhances student learning
  • 6. It is important to educate field instructors
    regarding the group seminar content, in order for
    them to integrate this content and allow students
    to complete seminar assignments in the field
    placement.

8
  • 7. It is a critical component to the students
    learning that the seminar instructors act as
    mentors and role models and have extensive
    backgrounds in child welfare.
  • 8. The seminar instructors participation in the
    process exercises, models the ability to risk in
    the classroom and enhances student learning.
  • 9. High ratio of number of instructors to
    students allows for rich coaching opportunities
    in learning new skills.

9
OUTCOMES

    10/11 experience led to refinement of both
    instrument construction and delivery.
  • Language clarity
  • Developing a consistent rubric that adequately
    measures the response (consistent and reliable)
  • The importance that the students placed on the
    value of connecting with one another and peer
    support.

    broadened teaching strategies.
