Seminar for New Field Instructors (Charles River Campus and Off-Campus Programs)
The Seminar for New Field Instructors is required for all field instructors supervising an MSW student for the first time. Because the course is designed to support beginning field instruction skills, we only offer the seminar to people supervising a student in the fall. Please note that several of the sections have an enrollment cap and some tend to fill up early. Priority will be given to field instructors who will be supervising Boston University students in the event a section becomes full. Field instructors who will be supervising macro practice students should enroll in the Wednesday morning section, Section C. If you are unable to attend one of the seminars offered by Boston University, you may be able to attend a similar seminar offered by one of the other New England schools of social work. See NECON for more information.
