Hong Kong University Press, May 1, 2000 - Education - 224 pages
This handbook is designed for those involved in teacher education and the supervision of practical teaching. It will be useful for university tutors on teacher education programmes and mentors in schools, as well as senior staff in schools who are involved in appraisal and evaluation. It is intended to meet the growing need for an accessible, jargon-free discussion of supervision conferencing that is based on practice and the viewpoints of both supervisors and those supervised, rather than just theory. This user-friendly handbook could be used as the basis of workshops for in-service training of supervisors. However, it is also designed as a readable self-help introduction to the subject for the many practising tutors for whom the supervision of teaching practice is a part of their everyday professional life. The handbook sets out to answer two main questions: ( What is the role and context of supervisory conferencing? ( How to tackle topics that are often difficult to discuss?
