In this unit, students critically evaluate well-established and cutting-edge social work practices, and advanced social work practice theory and in range of professional context. Students undertake an independent project where they articulate and interrogate their own professional practice framework, integrating social work research, theory, and knowledge from field placement to develop a social work project or resource. The role of professional supervision, evaluation and the use of critical reflection for ongoing professional learning is explored. This unit is offered online, however all students must complete a 5 day face to face intensive at CDU Casuarina campus. The intensive provides a forum for experiential learning, and sharing practice knowledge between fellow students, community, consumers and industry.
