Lecture contents

In this module, the students acquire an understanding of the conditions and objectives of ‘reflection' and collectively generate group rules for the formation of the module. Self-perception and external perception are addressed, and team and cooperation skills strengthened.
Furthermore, students acquire fundamental knowledge about selected social organisations i.e. relating to their history, goals, tasks, legal conditions, financial foundations, professional repertoire of methods, organisational structure and documentation. Current questions by selected institutions, as well as concrete practice experience are reflected, and related to theory and practice where appropriate. This is also done in preparation for a 4-week long work placement, which full time students complete at the beginning of the 2nd semester and relates to the practice orientation days for part time students in the 1st/2nd semester. Questions about reconciling studies, work placement and professional motivation are discussed. The different roles of work placement managers and interns are discussed and explained.

Lecture contents

In this module, students are given an overview of the socio-political and economic basis for material welfare. They are able to distinguish different levels and actors within social policy, and gain insight into common welfare state ideologies and concepts, as well as current reform discourse.
The students acquire knowledge about fundamental structures, operating modes and effects of socio-political and economic intervention in the areas of work and unemployment, poverty and social exclusion. They also prepare professionally sound positions on problems, measures and future perspectives in these socio-political fields of intervention. Through concrete case studies they learn to critically and constructively reflect on current welfare state regulation and identify possibilities of intervention.

Lecture contents

Through the long-term exploration of a field of practice, insight into the professional reality of social workers and care workers and the exploration of the future professional roles is possible. Independent work with clients (or groups) in various phases of a counselling process or interventions can be tested. These practical experiences should be connected to the theoretical knowledge acquired over the course of study.

Lecture contents

Full time students:
In various settings, students will present their experiences from the practical placements of the previous semester; in doing so, various presentation techniques will be implemented.
In small groups and in individual coaching, students reflect upon and analyse relevant topics from the professional practice and provide insights into questions and problems they have brought with them from various social institutions and social systems (both in Austria and abroad). The learning experiences from the practical placement will be connected to each other and integrated in the context of the training in such a way that the professional identity is supported.

Part time students:
During the practical placements which are experienced between the 3rd and 5th semester, emphasis will be placed on the continual reflection and analyse of diverse personal and professional experiences, both in single and group contexts, as well as the integration of experiences in the students’ own professional understanding. This serves the students own development of a professional identity.
