STRYDOM, Herman  and  UBBINK, Marie. A field trip as part of the social work research module. Social work (Stellenbosch. Online) [online]. 2015, vol.51, n.4, pp.533-548. ISSN 2312-7198.

This study focused on the value of a field excursion for final-year Social Work students as part of the research module with the aim of integrating the theory and practice of research. Students were expected to do unstructured interviewing with older persons in a deep rural community, with the main focus of the study being on the impressions and experiences of the students. Seven main themes were delineated in this study according to narratives given by participants, namely Social Work and research, feelings of the researcher, knowledge of the self, resilience, infrastructure, challenges facing the community and future perspectives.
