This will involve early detection of teaching and learning problems, careful assessment, and resolution strategies for agency field instructors and/or students. In addition, duties will include setting and maintaining professional standards for MSW students, leadership of the first-year and second year integrated field seminars, and related coaching, mentorship, and professional development activities. Administrative duties will include: reviewing, signing, and completing all required paperwork in a timely manner, working with other field faculty, senate faculty, and administrative staff, participating in admission reviews, participating in field faculty meetings, and meeting with the Director of Field Education.
