ASHA Professional Development Supervision Courses

This program was initially conducted live as part of ASHA's Supervision Symposium, held on July 25, 2017, where supervisors and supervisees from various academic, educational, and health care settings came together to learn about the supervision process from A to Z.

The session, “Knowledge, Skills, and Competencies for Supervision,” explores how supervisors can grow through critical reflection and goal setting. It was collaborative and involved small group discussion. You may wish to view this session with other supervisors and discuss it together, or you may complete it individually.

The session comes with a comprehensive workbook for note-taking and application of content. 

Knowledge, Skills, and Competencies for Supervision

9 Building Blocks - Group WorkFeedback and reflection is a key component of professional growth—for supervisees and supervisors. Self-assessment plays a vital role in improving the skills of clinical educators, preceptors, mentors, and supervisors, and this course will provide the opportunity for clinicians to explore their own competencies in supervision based on the results of a self-assessment tool. The course will discuss specific competencies from five overall knowledge and skill areas and give participants the opportunity to brainstorm and share scenarios. Participants will walk away with specific goals to improve their knowledge, skills, and competencies in supervision.
