Professional Development Series: Supervision of Teaching


This six-week, non-credit professional development series provides participants with the opportunity to think about, explore, and develop possibilities in their work (current or future) as school advisors and faculty advisors (i.e., a teacher or university representative who supervises a teacher candidate on practicum). The program will examine some of the underlying theories and practices for how we might best support someone who is learning to teach.

Central to the series will be the conversations we engage in that explore and examine our conceptions of teaching, learning, and learning how to teach. In addition, there will be some very practical suggestions about how to prepare for and work with a beginning teacher in the classroom. Finally, we will think about what motivates and challenges us in our work as school-based teacher educators.

This professional development offering will be led by Dr. Andrea Webb, Assistant Professor of Teaching, Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy (EDCP).
