Ryerson’s School of Social Work has the largest undergraduate social work program in Canada and a history of delivering excellent field education curriculum for almost 50 years. As leaders in the provision of field education, we are aware of the tensions and economic realities that impact field education in the current context. This project will explore alternative models of field education through a review our field education curriculum and interviews and focus groups with various stakeholders.  The aim is to consider new, innovative ways to deliver field education that enhance student engagement and experiential learning for professional social work practice
