11th International Conference on Practice Learning and Field Education
The School of Sociology, Social Policy and Social Work was delighted to host the 11th International Conference on Practice Learning and Field Education in association with Whiting and Birch Publishers from 4th – 6th April 2016. The conference was attended by 140 international delegates from a range of disciplinary backgrounds, exploring issues in relation to supporting students to integrate theory and practice, assessment of student learning, and the internationalisation of the student learning experience. Presentations were made by a number of Queen’s staff, and delegates were hosted for a reception in the Great Hall on one evening. Harry Venning, creator of the ‘Claire in the community’ comic strip in The Guardian newspaper, was also in attendance to capture aspects of the conference!
