Remote Supervision at Preservice and Inservice Levels in Teacher Education.
Dalrymple, Julia I.; And Others
Four separate studies compared the efficacy of remote versus face-to-face supervision of home economics student teachers and teachers. The first study involved case studies of two interns, their cooperating teachers, and college supervisors, who tested an audio-phone method of supervision. Costs were found to be lessened, and all persons involved were satisfied with the experience. The second experiment used a pretest-posttest control group design with ten student teachers. Supervisory methods compared were face-to-face and audio-phone. There was no significant difference in attitudes of supervisors of the two groups, but the experimental group was more satisfied with their supervision than the control group. The third study compared three methods of supervision--face-to-face, audio-phone, and video-phone--using a pretest-posttest control group design involving 36 student teachers. Hypotheses tested related to teaching competence, teaching confidence, and satisfaction. Satisfaction was greatest for face-to-face and video-phone methods, but there was no difference between groups in teaching competence or confidence. The fourth study obtained evaluations from one state supervisor and 25 inservice teachers testing an audio-phone method of supervision. All parties involved were satisfied with the method. (RT)
