The 2014 CSWE Annual Program Meeting in Tampa, FL, included an all-day Field Summit, attended by 100 social work educators. Field Director and Dean/Director pairs were admitted into the facilitated session, representing schools across the country. The official report on the Summit is now available on the CSWE website. A brief summary, and links to the plenary presentations by Marion Bogo and Virna Little are available here.
In addition, in response to requests from NANFED’s membership, NANFED hosted an open Post-Field Summit Dialogue session at the 2014 APM. The session was attended by over 140 social work educators. A summary of the discussion and themes identified at is posted here. This feedback has been shared with COFE and CSWE.
We look forward to further dialogue about emerging issues in social work field education.
