Abstract: The Behavior Analyst Certification Board provides minimal guidelines for university professors on how to implement supervision of students in their field experience. While this allows for a lot of flexibility in designing a field experience that meets the needs of different programs, the paucity of guidelines also leads to a difficult challenge for the professor teaching the field experience course. Each panelist will briefly talk about how the field experience is arranged at their respective universities and highlight desirable and undesirable features. Also, panelists will relate problems they have encountered and how they were solved as well as provide tips to other field experience supervisors that will assist others in designing and teaching the field experience course. Course materials such as sample syllabi and field experience supervision contracts will be provided. The purpose of this discussion will be to share information and ideas with other providers of field experience supervision.
