01:757 Supervisory Policy and Practice [Skinner]

Prerequisites: 01:552.

This course deals with current behavioral theory and research with application to issues of staffing, supervision and evaluation. Topics such as selection, assignment, and assessment of teaching and non-teaching personnel will be closely examined. Students will examine the nature of supervision and evaluation, both generally, with reference to theory and approach, and particularly, with reference to their own professional practice. Candidates will be afforded the opportunity to examine and compare a variety of supervisory models and to formulate a contextually relevant model that can be communicated to constituents in the field.

Credit cannot be held for both this course and 01:543.
