Social work educators and field instructors need reliable and valid tools to assess students’ achievement of competence. Through a program of research at the University of Toronto, a range of innovative tools have been developed and tested as well as the use of standardized human simulation in an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) adapted for social work. This presentation from the 2014 Title IV-E Summer Field Institutel reviews these tools and presents guidelines for designing and implementing simulation as an adjunct to traditional field evaluation. Marion Bogo, the presenter, is the coauthor of the seminal book on field education, The Practice of Field Instruction in Social Work (1998, Columbia University Press), of Social Work Practice: Concepts, Processes, and Interviewing (2006, Columbia University Press), and Achieving Competence in Social Work through Field Education (2010, University of Toronto Press), and over 100 book chapters and peer-reviewed articles on social work education and educational outcomes assessment.

Based on Kolb’s Cycle of Experiential Learning, simulation training is designed specifically to promote critical thinking, decision making, analysis and problem solving. This presentation discusses how LA County employs a multidisciplinary team of facilitators to move learning from isolated interventions learned in class to more realistic scenarios. The facilitators demonstrate a scenario / scene using conference participants at the 2014 Title IV-E Summer Field Institute, debrief the scene together with the audience, and explain the instructional outcome and scaffolding included in the scene. This design allows for a safe, controlled space in which trainees can make and learn from their mistakes and receive immediate and valuable feedback.
