Social Work Exhibition and Social Work Thesis HGW607

Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast

Introduction

This capstone unit provides you with an opportunity to demonstrate the integration of your learning that was applied to design and implement interventions, including research, across your entire social work degree including a specific focus on your final placement. You will reflect on the knowledge, skills and values you integrated to develop and implement these interventions. You will undertake analysis of the outcomes of your practice – relying on evidence you collected during your studies in social work – and you will consider the implications of these findings for contributing to sustainable practice and service and policy improvements. Professional pathways students are challenged to design and exhibit creative strategies to communicate the results of their practices that reflect the integration of their learning. Research pathways students are challenged to tell a compelling narrative of their research in a thesis.
