Education faculty present at national conference

By Patrice Scott

Six individuals representing the College of Education's curriculum and instruction department presented at the National Field Experience Conference April 21-22 at the University of Northern Colorado.

Two of the three presentations focused on continuing research regarding distance supervision. Both were led by David S. Allen, associate professor and director of the office of field experiences.

Allen, Twyla Sprouse a Manhattan-Ogden USD 383 clinical instructor, and Lori Goodson, assistant professor, presented "Distance Supervision: Designing an Effective Model." They discussed the process and protocol for successful distance supervision.

In a related distance supervision presentation, Allison Rothwell, a USD 475 Geary County Schools clinical instructor, and graduate student Erica Sponberg discussed their ongoing research in the presentation, "Reflective Video-Feedback for Distance Supervision: Pre-Service Elementary Teachers' Responses to Supervisor Comments." They shared their research on feedback in the distance supervision process.

Todd Goodson, associate professor and curriculum and instruction department chair, and Lori Goodson presented "Alternative Field Experiences for Pre-Service Teachers," which included conversation about the Summer STEM Institute and the field experience collaboration with Manhattan-Ogden USD 383.
