Supervise for your and your students’ success

Remote supervision is doable and rewarding, but requires increased considerations for contact, communication, documentation, and feedback. Consider using an experiential learning (EL) approach to enhance your and your student’s success.

When supervising remotely, we’ve seen that it's even more important to be strategic in setting up structures to ensure you are checking in regularly on students' well-being and progress.

EL WrapAround Resources

The Experiential Learning (EL) WrapAround is a low-time-commitment, high-impact strategy, supervisors and students engage in productive conversations about how to get the most out of an on-campus student role. These conversations, which bookend the student job (at start and at end) are guided by the EL WrapAround Learning Reflection Form. With a few straightforward questions, students and supervisors identify and reflect on skills being developed in these roles.

The EL Hub provides optional training and support for both supervisors and students to help make the experience as easy and accessible as possible.
