END OF CHECKSHEET

 

NOTES ON SUPERVISOR CHECKSHEET

 

A Supervisor's Checksheet hasn't been worked out at this time. All the theory materials are however included. 
It will consist of doing the Study Manual from the viewpoint of supervising. The drills
and Practical assignments have to be written up from this viewpoint. The key question being:
"How would you as a Supervisor apply these data to students?"
It would also include the Supervisor section, of course.
It should also include Supervisor's TRs.
The prerequisites to become a well qualified supervisor would be Clearbird's Level Zero or higher.
