This training series is offered in two formats, face-to-face on September 13 & 20, and virtually online via Zoom each Thursday from 12-1pm beginning August 29 and ending October 3.

About Field Supervision 101

This marks our third year providing the Field Supervision 101 training series. Each year we've updated the slides based on feedback we've received and have tried different formats to meet the demanding schedules of our Field Faculty.

This year we are excited to offer the Field Supervision 101 training series as either a two-day three-hour workshop or six one-hour webinars over a 6 week period.

We will also be piloting a new asynchronous version of the training this fall. More details to come during the Field Instructor Orientation.
