The module is connected closely to modules ‘Problem based learning (15 ECTS) and ‘Practice Research and Service User Perspectives’ (10 ECTS). Although divided into three modules the three modules will be overlapping as ‘Practice Research and Service User. Perspectives’ will be the focus of the Field Study and the PBL-project.
The aim of the module is to provide students with knowledge, skills and competences to conduct a field study with a focus on practice research and service user perspectives. Students will through visits in social work practices conduct a piece of study defining the specific institutional dynamics within the organization related to service user perspectives and practice research.
