Received, with colleagues Audrey Roulston and Mandi MacDonald, a Queen’s Annual Fund Award of £1500 to fund a project to enhance the experiences of students undertaking
practice learning. Using professionally filmed and edited video clips of 19 students, we captured their experiences of practice learning. These are openly available on the School web
page. The purpose of the project is to alleviate the anxiety of student social workers who are preparing for their practice learning opportunity, to assist students to prepare for their PLO and to identify learning needs and opportunities for their Individual Learning Plan. Positive feedback has been obtained from students who participated in the filming and the project is currently being evaluated with students undertaking practice learning in 2013/2014.
