The Impact of the Clinical Supervision Initiative on the Development of University Faculty Supervision Skills.
A summary of the Far West Laboratory findings in regard to the impact of the clinical supervision initiative (CSI) on project faculty and non-project faculty in general is presented with some detail on how the project faculty and non-project faculty at the California State University (CSU) Hayward campus seem to have been affected by CSI. The major training efforts for faculty at CSU Hayward were conducted with single subject and multiple subject faculty. The training program took place every 3 to 4 weeks for 3 hours for each of the project's 3 years. Discussion sessions were heated but carried out in a manner in which each person's ideas were given attention and treated with respect. Findings of the Far West Laboratory include: as a group, enhanced project faculty participated in the CSI workshop to a greater extent than non-project faculty; enhanced project faculty reported a better comprehension of CSI than non-project faculty who received instruction; multiple subject and single subject university supervisors received clinical supervision instruction from multiple sources; and student teachers perceived that project faculty more frequently used CSI techniques than non-project faculty. A primary outcome of the enhanced supervision formula was the reported increase in quality of supervision enhanced project offered student teachers. At the conclusion of the study, there was impetus to continue the faculty's efforts in assisting each other with staff development in areas that both faculty and students thought were in greatest need of attention.
