Call for Symposium Abstracts

Australian social work and human services education is conducted in an increasingly complex environment where issues such as welfare reform and natural disasters impact on learning opportunities and service delivery. The voice of service users illuminate dichotomies of needs directed service provision and the limitations of welfare defined by a market economy. Students experience a range of conditions such as work/study/life tensions, remote learning and rural placements that impact on field placements. The AASWWE welcomes abstracts from academics and professionals in the field on:

  •  Field education
  •  Distance education and remote placement
  •  Disasters
  •  Social policy
  •  The service user voice
  • In addition to presenting the paper at the symposium, contributors will have the opportunity to submit a paper for consideration in a special issue of the Advances in Social Work and Welfare Education Journal for publication in 2012.

    For abstract submissions of up to 200 words and inquiries contact:

    Patricia Fronek [p.fronek@griffith.edu.au]

    Abstract submission deadline: 22 July 2011
