In fact, this field work is an integral part of social work education. The students need to continue their field work practice-learning through their initiatives, even during the COVID-19 pandemic; hence, it is time to experiment field work practice-learning exposure in new settings. This paper presents a blueprint of field work practice-learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, based on the author’s own actual teaching-learning instruction-based experimentations and innovations for more than one-and-a-half years. The paper also talks about various tasks to be performed by the students physically or virtually or in a blended mode. Besides, the paper explores the role of the faculty supervisor in the present situation.
