Using Online Delivery to Support Students During Practicum Placements (2006)
Finding ways to effectively support students while on placement remains a continuing endeavor for those who teach in professional education programs. In this article the multiple challenges and learning opportunities that social work students encounter during practicum learning will be discussed. Next, drawing from constructivist pedagogy and using authentic examples from an online discussion board, ways to supplement the support and educational input provided to students on placement will be demonstrated. Finally, some of the risks and limitations in engaging with online delivery are examined with the view to understanding how e-learning can be facilitated most effectively for students during the practicum.
