Our Uniqueness

Field research or fieldwork is the collection of information outside of a laboratory, library or workplace setting. The approaches and methods used in field research vary across disciplines. For example, biologists who conduct field research may simply observe animals interacting with their environments, whereas social scientists conducting field research may interview or observe people in their natural environments to learn their languages, folklore, and social structures.

Darul Umoor has extensive field research and survey work. Field research involves a range of well-defined, although variable, methods: informal interviews, direct observation, participation in the life of the group, collective discussions, analyses of personal documents produced within the group, self-analysis, results from activities undertaken off- or on-line, and life-histories. Although the method generally is characterized as qualitative research, it may (and often does) include quantitative dimensions.

The field work practicum is the central mechanism for transmitting theoretical knowledge into the practical level of work. Practice learning in social work training plays a pivotal role in providing the students with an opportunity to explore, learn
and develop professional skills necessary for working with people, the essence of the profession. It has several components that help the students to develop a holistic understanding of the problems, situations, their causative factors and the possible strategies of intervention. The broad aim of field work is to provide opportunities for students to apply
the knowledge learnt in the classroom situations and to plan, implement and evaluate these experiences while working with individuals, groups and communities.
