The 7th Conference cum Workshop on Practice and Research for Social Service Excellence

Social Development – Seminar      2018/03/22

The social service sector is committed to the pursuit of service excellence. In past few years, the Council has successfully organized a series of conferences and workshops, bringing together overseas and local wisdoms on evidence-based practice. We hope to stimulate exchange and learning among NGO practitioners, and to explore different ways of using research to promote service impact and service innovation.

“Learning for Service Development: What Evidence Tells” is the theme of the coming conference. We invite selected winners of the Best Practice Awards project to share how they assess and demonstrate their service impact, the insight that they gain for service development.

Moreover, we are glad to have Dr. Sui Ting Kong, Assistant Professor of Social Work in the Department of Sociology from Durham University, to be our keynote speaker at the conference. She has always been interested in social work practice research, qualitative methodological innovation, and theorising intimate partner violence and practices of intimacy. In the coming conference, she will be introducing how the social service agencies use practice research as service development and reflection, and the possibilities for the cooperation between research practitioners and social workers for link up research and service development. She will also be running a pre-conference workshop for us. By providing activities and case studies, she will facilitate our participants to reflect on roles of social workers and practitioners-researcher as well as the possible room for collaboration between them in designing and promoting practice research in their own agency.
