Orientation for Field Instructors/Task Supervisor

  • 1.  Orientation for Field Instructors/Task Supervisor

    Posted 22 days ago
    Good afternoon everyone!
    We are in the process of reviewing our Field Instructor/Task Supervisor orientations.  Typically this as been about 8 hours face to face or 7 hours via zoom.  Right now it feels old and stale and I was just wondering how others do the orientations for field instructors/task supervisors.
    Thank you and I look foward to hearing from others.

    Hi Tonya,

    We had a similar thought a few years back. In response, we did the following:

    1. Created an online set of modules (short, 3-10 minute videos) on topics related to field educator orientation: UB Field Ed Orientation Modules
    2. Yearly, in September/October we offer a virtual field educator orientation for 3 CE's
    3. We still provide/offer Zoom field educator orientations that are about 45-60 minutes

    Hopefully this is helpful!

    Good morning Tonya- the Council on Field Education curated a repository of field instructor training materials, including orientations.  Here is the link to the COFE page
    Council on Field Education
    You'll see a link to the repository in the left column, above members' names.
    We think you will find some useful materials there.
    All the best!

    Our orientation runs about 2 hours in person or 1 hour if it's one-on-one.

    Hi Tanya, I am a new Field Director and found this resource on CSWE's website which has been very useful in prepping for the training for supervisors I have to do in the fall.

    Thank you for the feedback.  I took over the Field Office in Nov. of 2021 and haven't been through a whole field office cycle.  I appreciate all of the input.
    Thank you!

    Hi all,

    I wanted to remind folks of a resource available to field directors as they put together trainings for agency supervisors.  The Council on Field Education (COFE) created the National Field Instructor's Training Repository.  Feel free to click on this link and use any of the resources provided.  (Click on the User's Guide): 

    Hope this helps,
    Aneesha
