As university courses become increasingly accessible via online technology, there is a growing obligation to train behavior analysts where they live and work--sometimes at a distance from the convenience of university lab programs and well-established behavior analysts. This panel will present "what works" in supervision of pre-professional behavior analysts using technology-aided distance or remote supervision. The Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) has set forth standards for supervision, but pragmatic questions remain as to how universities can provide quality supervision experiences, especially for non-traditional students. Panelists convened in this presentation have all supervised and developed programs for pre-professional behavior analysts in either university programs or through privately contracted services. Panelists will be asked to discuss (a) their programs in terms of pre-requisites, BACB requirements, site placements, and the management of supervisee/supervisor hours, (b) curricula and the supervisor's instructional method for teaching behavior analytic skill competencies, (c) data collected on supervision and/or program evaluations, (d) technology that works well and what needs improvement, and (e) future directions and plans for supervising pre-professional behavior analysts. University contact faculty, supervisors, and agencies that provide supervision should all consider attending this important and timely panel. Christine Ratcliff (BACB) will co-chair.
