Resources for Field Educators

Learning in field education occurs through experiential processes in an organisational context. Field Education is a defined period of time in which students are expected to practice their professional skills outside of the university. Students are supported in their learning through the appointment of a field educator at the placement organisation. In line with the limitations and remit of the organisation, the placement is structured to meet university requirements.

Field education enables students to engage in professional and interpersonal relationships with clients, colleagues and other organisations, and is the place where theory and practice come together. To assist in this process, the university requires students to participate in the organisational learning tasks whilst engaging in university-based Action Learning Sets/tutorials, reflexive exercises and supervision.
