The Role of the Agency Supervisor.
Ramsay, William R.
This discussion is limited to specific opportunities and methods of supervising students rather than encompassing supervisory techniques in general. This paper: (1) examines the characteristics of student workers from the supervisory point of view, (2) notes the type of structures for supervising student field experience, (3) suggests supervisory functions, and (4) summarizes the potentials of good supervision. It is assumed for purposes of this report that productive work is a factor in the field experience situation. The degree of productive work will vary depending on the structure used and objectives of the particular program; however, implicit in a discussion of supervision is the expectation of some product or service. The characteristics of students, therefore, are discussed in terms of the possibilities and limitations of students as manpower that should be recognized by a supervisor both for effective manpower utilization and for greatest learning.
