Video Assessment for Skill Development in Social Work
The phone calls, emails, paperwork, and gentle negotiations on your students’ behalf are done! Your placement team has gotten all of your students placed at external agencies for their practicum experiences. You know they are gaining real-world experience under the supervision of a qualified field instructor at one of your program’s partnering field agencies. All set!… right?
The students’ placements may be secured, but your field liaisons’ work is just beginning! They need to find a way to remain connected to students and support their competency development remotely, while students are away at placements. Meanwhile, you need to be sure that field instructors have the proper tools in place to provide high-quality feedback to students. And you need to be sure each of the students in your program is meeting competency benchmarks, no matter how remote their placement.
How can you do it all?!
Enter Video Assessment
Your field liaisons can’t be everywhere at once, but with smartphones and increasingly accessible recording devices, it’s never been easier for students to record their clinical experiences! With the right tools in place, this raw footage is rocket fuel for your students’ competency development.
Tevera’s video assessment tool allows students to upload video recordings to an interactive platform that brings students, field liaisons, and field instructors together.
Once uploaded, students, field liaisons, and field instructors alike can review video footage and share actionable, time-stamped feedback, directly linked to the video.
Finally, field liaisons and field instructors can evaluate student competency development all in one place, so you can keep an eye on student progress across your entire program in real time!
