Abstract

Effective training of external practicum site supervisors is a challenge to university training programs. The number of sites and supervisors, distance, time and cost factors all contribute to the need to find efficient methods of providing supervisors with crucial information pertinent to clinical training. The key components to training supervisors on current certification standards and principles of formative assessment learning are the primary focus of this article. Successful methods for providing this information using both traditional formats and technological advances are described in detail. All methods are easily replicable in order to meet the specific training requirements of individual programs in speech-language pathology and audiology.
