Wednesday, March 20 4:30-4:45 PM Location: Sunset 1
Abstract: Kansas State University developed a comprehensive digitally-mediated supervision system forming the foundation of an online program. The culmination of five years of field-based research, this system is currently used as the sole supervision model in the M.A.T. program and in a hybrid format for supervision in the undergraduate campus-based program. The program development was bound by a theoretical framework incorporating the ideals of Schwille (2008); He (2007); Cogan (1972) and Dussault (1970). Additionally, the development of the program focused on the characteristics of Millennials, the largest demographic in the current teacher pool (Ingersoll, Merrill, & Stuckey, 2014) and used contemporary innovative technologies in a manner consistent with the SAMR model (Hamilton, Rosenberg, & Akcaoglu, 2016; Puentedura, 2014) as a means of creating a common language to re-imagine the roles of reflection, feedback, and collegial relationship.
