Abstract

Social Work students participate for a total of 140 days over two Field Placements in a variety of practice settings across Australia and Internationally to meet the Australian Association of Social Work practice standards. Students are supported and evaluated by the Dept of Social Work staff, professional Social Work Field Educators from the community and Human Service Agencies. Feedback from all stakeholders indicated that the current evaluation tool was restrictive and difficult to use.This paper documents the community development process utilised to engage with stakeholders in the Action research project to develop an e-Portfolio assessment tool that enhances student learning whilst on field placement. The conclusion links the project design process to lifelong learning strategies of collecting information, reflecting and interacting with the process and products of the project with student engagement with the e-portfolio.
