Description

Effective field supervision is critical to our students’ educational experience in externship courses. Given the broad range of externship programs across the country, schools have a range of views and approaches to helping site supervisors be effective in their role as evidenced by a survey that the panel conducted in early 2018. In our concurrent session, we will share the results of our survey of externship programs including: 1) training tools identified by respondents as being the most effective, 2) incentives used by respondents to increase participation in on-line or in-person training, 3) the most critical training needs identified by respondents, 4) how programs measure the impact of their training efforts, and, 5) the challenges that respondents would like to address through training. In addition to the survey results, we will share our experiences with externship training as well as materials including supervisor self-assessment tools, handbooks, feedback rubrics and others. Our presentation will be informed by the varied setting, size of program, and experiences of the presenters.
