Webinar Presenters

Marion Bogo, O.C., LL.D., MSW, RSW, is a Professor at the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto.  She received the Significant Lifetime Achievement in Social Work Education Award from the Council on Social Work Education in the United States (2013), was appointed as an Officer, Order of Canada (2014), and received a Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, from Memorial University of Newfoundland (2018) for her contributions to social work education.



This presentation will address teaching and learning processes that lead to effective social work graduates. A long-standing multi-project program of research on social work education has identified a model of holistic competence for all levels of social work practice. This model guides the design and testing of innovative approaches to teach and assess students’ practice. Simulation-based learning prepares, bridges, and enhances engagement in field learning. The presentation will draw from these experiences and research to identify best practices for field education.

This session is being delivered in partnership with Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) School of Social Work.
