Course outline

The Supervisor course includes 3 components:

1. Online course
This component comprises seven self-paced modules. Within each module there are coherent, clear learning outcomes. The aims of the modules are to support participants to become aware of the important decisions to be made as a clinical supervisor and the variety of possibilities available. The course includes presentations, videos, reflective tasks, readings and resources, including templates to be used in clinical practice.

A series of assessment tasks (quizzes) are also included. These formative multiple-choice assessment questions not only inform the student as to how learning is progressing but allos students to obtain feedback and address any gaps in their knowledge and skills.

The online course takes approximately 35 hours to complete.
