(FH) Thomas Valina, MA3SWS3ECTSLecture contentsIn this module, the students engage with the operational range of social work, which operates in the areas of poverty and risk of poverty. They receive an overview of the courses of action relating to the respective institutions in the area of needs-based minimum income, as well as of social service centres, assistance to the homeless and people in debt. They engage with the circumstances of people affected by poverty, and analyse the causes and effects of poverty and social exclusion. The students are introduced to the different institutional and material support services, which help secure the livelihood of people who are at risk of poverty or affected by poverty, as well as provide them with individual assistance. Furthermore, students get to know primary case study tools in this module, and apply them to practical cases from the area of intervention.Assessment methodsModule examTeaching methodsGroup exercises, caseworkLanguageGerman-English> Reflection on Practice 1 SE Social Work moreReflection on Practice 1 SELector: Mag.a (FH) Roswitha Ertl, Anna Fischlmayr, BA, MA, Maria Fraißler, BA MA, Mag.a(FH) Silvia Frauscher, Mag.a Iris Frühmann-Pribil, Mag.a (FH) Doris Stephan, Mag.

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.Assessment methodsContinuous assessment Immanent exam characteristic with different partial performance requirementsTeaching methodsGroup work, excursion, social space researchLanguageGerman-English> Social Policy and Social Economy SE Social Work moreSocial Policy and Social Economy SELector: Dominik Klaus, MSc, Mag. (FH) Thomas Valina, MA, MMag Norman Wagner2SWS3ECTSLecture contentsIn 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.Assessment methodsModule examTeaching methodsText analysis, discussionsLanguageGerman-English> Reflection on Practice 3 SE Social Work moreReflection on Practice 3 SELector: Maria Fraißler, BA MA, Mag.a Iris Frühmann-Pribil, Siaka Jinadou, FH-Prof.in Gabriele Kronberger, MA MSc, DSAin Verena Scharf, MA, Mag.a (FH) Doris Stephan, Mag.

The seminary content is oriented toward the topics, which are actively introduced by the group members. As is necessary and according to interests, topical emphasis can be picked up and deepened. Strengthening and allowing the individual responsibility and initiative of the group members is of central importance here.Assessment methodsContinuous assessment Immanent exam characteristic with different partial performance requirementsTeaching methodsDiscussion, group work, role play, lecture, excursion, individual coachingLanguageGermanPublications The publications of Thomas Valina written at FH Campus Wien can be found in our publication database, others in the personal web space.
