Supervision & Facilitation
The University has a number of resources to support you in your role as supervisor/facilitator. You will also receive contact details for the Academic or Academic Liaison who can assist you in answering any question you may have around your student(s). This might be their assessment and progress, managing underperformance, well being concern, providing feedback, or anything else that might arise.
If you are new to supervision or facilitation, the Professional Certificate in Practice Education & Supervision (PCPE) is a short course focused on developing these skills.
ClinEd Aus Placement Models and Approaches to Supervision is a resource providing an overview of the different types of models that you may find useful - https://www.clinedaus.org.au/topics-category/placement-models-and-approaches-to-supervision-88
Everyone likes to do things well and supervision/facilitation is one of them. You will find your skills in this area will evolve over time.
Each discipline will have a set of resources to support you with facilitating/supervising your student(s). They are accessible under the discipline links below.
Managing under performance/placement issues
These may feel challenging to conduct and if done well, will benefit the student(s) in their learning. The most important thing to remember is to contact your UniSA Academic or Academic Liaison for support (details of these persons are emailed to you by CPU). Nursing & Midwifery, as an example, have a clinical challenge document that is tailored to the student's performance development need.
Having these conversations with your student(s) may feel difficult. The resource, Difficult Conversations, provided further below will help you with this. Another resource is to attend one of the PCPE workshops which covers this in more detail.
