Collectively, the 39 participants in the Post-Career Reflections study have over 1,000 years of experience. It stands to reason that they have valuable insights for social work educators at different stages of their careers. Participants were asked: “Now that you have retired [or are about to retire], what words of wisdom would you offer to social work educators who about to launch a career in social work education; those social work educators who are midway through their career; and those educators who are in the waning years of their career?” This chapter shares the advice that they offered, divided into sections for newbies, mid-career educators, and twilighters.
