The Feasibility of Audiotape-Telephone Supervision of High School Teachers.
Murphy, Lila Catherine
To determine the feasibility of using audiotape recordings of class sessions and follow-up supervisory telephone conferences in in-service teacher supervision, 16 experienced and nine inexperienced junior and senior high school home economics teachers recorded three class sessions and mailed the tapes to the supervisor. After each tape was reviewed by the supervisor, a follow-up supervisory conference was conducted by telephone. Additional data were gathered from discussions at a group conference, recorded telephone conferences, and the supervisor's records. Teachers and supervisors found the media and method acceptable, efficient, and effective. Teachers preferred the audiotape-telephone method or a combination of this method and personal contact to the supervisory school visit and rated the audiotape-telephone method as most valuable in stimulating self-evaluation. Significant differences existed between the scores of experienced and inexperienced teachers on satisfaction with the audiotape-telephone method and the ability to interact verbally with the supervisor. This Ph.D. dissertation was submitted to The Ohio State University. (JK)
