Area: Supervision
Type: My research (completed)
Keywords: coaching supervision, auto-ethnography, process, social learning, contingent scaffolding

Session on Friday, Jul 5th, 13:50
» Where on timetable


Join me to explore how I used an auto-ethnographic approach to explore the deeper structures and processes of coaching supervision.
In this session I will discuss the findings of my research that reveals an underlying social learning process at the heart of generative supervision, with supervisor and supervisee engaged in an emergent co-constructed learning space occupied by supervisor and supervisee that relies on trust and the willingness to be honest and at times vulnerable.

I will share my research findings and invite participants to share ideas, thoughts, and perspectives from their own practice
