Students’ internship education is the signature pedagogy of the social work profession. This course is a seminar that serves to enrich students’ internship experience. The focus of this course is on the experiences and progress of the student in the first semester of the internship and the relationship of the internship experience to specific foundation class content. The emphasis is on issues that are likely to emerge at the start of the internship experience including professional conduct and comportment, use of supervision, writing for the internship, organizational context, and initial work with client systems. This course will meet in five synchronous sessions over the span of the Fall and Spring semesters. The Sakai portal will be the platform for modules that contain course readings, assignments, and interactive forums.
