Experiential Learning Plan

The spread of COVID-19 around the country and globe continues to present significant challenges for social work education. Each social work student, teacher, field instructor, and program is unique, and so have been their responses to this pandemic. In response to the continuing impact of the pandemic, the University of Maryland School of Social Work created a COVID-19 Task Force, which addressed matters as they related to Field Education.

The following documents will provide a better understanding of policies that have been implemented for Field Placement agencies to better navigatie issues as they pertain to MSW students during this pandemic.  Please note that the agency coordinator will need to review these documents, sign them electronically and return them to the Office of Field Education.  The forms should be returned to the Office Manager, Donna Earling at dearling@ssw.umaryland.edu.  If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the office at fieldeducation@ssw.umaryland.edu
