Supervision is a space for reflection – we learn looking back at our experience. It helps us understand our tasks, work ethics, challenges, and solutions. It may be a space where we can ask and give emotional support. But sometimes it is not a part of our setting or the kind of supervision we have is not sufficient.

Shortly after I started my graduate studies I became interested in counseling and started my counseling training parallel with my initial education. I was surprised to find out that supervision was sometimes mentioned during my formal education while in the counseling practice it was explained and part of the process since day one. I knew that I will be talking about my practice - analyzing my skills and knowledge with someone and I was looking forward to it.

Co musisz wiedzieć i umieć przed zrobieniem pierwszego kursu online

Zapraszamy na bezpłatny webinar prowadzony przez polskich Ambasadorów Platformy EPALE: Sławka Łaisa i Piotra Maczugę.

Nie da się ukryć, że kursy online są obecnie po prostu modne. Jako ludzie aktywni coraz częściej stajemy po obu stronach procesu. Nie tylko uczymy się i rozwijamy dzięki kursom, ale sami mamy ambicję uczyć innych. Powstaje wiele poradników i materiałów mówiących o tym, jak zrobić kurs, który zarobi duże pieniądze. Stosunkowo mało z nich na poważnie traktuje próbę odpowiedzi na inne kluczowe pytanie: jak zrobić kurs, który po prostu będzie dobry?
