Workshop #W58
CE Offered: BACB — 
CANCELED: Systematizing the Supervision Process: Using a Curriculum-Based Measurement System Through Technology to Provide Competency-Based Supervision
Friday, May 25, 2018
8:00 AM–3:00 PM
Room to be Announced
Area: PRA/TBA; Domain: Service Delivery
CE Instructor: Jamie Hughes-Lika, Ph.D.
LAUREN LESA LANIER (CARE, LLC / Endicott College), JAMIE HUGHES-LIKA (Summit Autism Services), JESSICA PIAZZA (CARE LLC), KAREN E. HANS (The University of Kent), AMY LANIER (University of Texas Health Science Center- Houston )
Description: The purpose of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) supervision experience is to improve behavior analytic, professional, and ethical repertoires of the supervisee, and monitor the performance of supervisees in the field. Effective supervision is critical to the quality of ongoing behavioral services, the professional development of the supervisee, the continued growth of the supervisor, and the overall development of our field and its practice. Additionally, supervisors have a responsibility to adhere to our specific ethical code covering supervision (Professional and Ethical Compliance Code for Behavior Analysts 5.0, Behavior Analyst Certification Board, 2014). The supervision experience should be carefully programmed, with competency-based assessments conducted of the supervisee's skills. There should be a clear course of study, supervisee's behavior should be operationally defined with objective and measurable goals to determine the application of their skills, and supervisees should receive prudent guidance to establish their professional development repertoire. Additionally, supervisees should clearly demonstrate acquisition and mastery of the competencies outlined in the BACB task list, as this will increase the quality of their experience, uphold the values of the field, and ensure practice requirements are of the highest fidelity and rigor. This workshop will guide participants through a proposed scope and sequence of a curriculum-based systematic supervision process (e.g., evaluation rubrics, goal setting, the development of unrestricted indirect and direct activities, etc.), designed to provide both performance and knowledge-based competencies for individuals pursuing BACB certification. Participants will learn how create an online tracking system, e-portfolio, and evaluation system through the Google platform. Additionally, participants will learn how to use an interactive cloud-based video software to provide time-coded descriptive feedback and scoring rubrics for supervisee's performance, to exactly pinpoint areas in need of improvement. *Participants should bring laptops, smartphones, and tablets to the workshop to practice using the technology applications.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, the participant will be able to: (1) Discuss and implement the PECC with regard to the use of evidence-based practices in supervision; (2) implement the use of at least two applications of technology to the practice of effective supervision; (3) utilize methods to evaluate supervisory effectiveness and supervisee satisfaction; (4) Develop competency-based supervisee scoring rubrics; (5) Design and implement organizational strategies to track supervisee performance; (6) describe and demonstrate components of effective, efficient, and evidence-based supervision
Activities: Activities for this workshop will include lecture, discussion, guided practice, video demonstration, live whole-group demonstrations of technology, and small-group breakouts to practice specific applications of technology.
Audience: This workshop would be appropriate for BCBAs or BCBA-Ds providing behavior analytic supervision to students, educators, or other professionals seeking certification as a BCBA or BCaBA, as well as to individuals certified as RBTs. It would also be appropriate for those involved in the organization and arrangement of BCBA supervision.
