Science Classroom Supervision
15-24 October 2019
About the event
The capacities and commitment of principals and supervisors that are vital to the quality of educational outcomes and most education system in the world require high quality teachers and leaders working in schools. One of the main roles of school supervision system is to monitor the quality of education at schools through teachers. Monitoring activities are expected to produce a positive impact on education quality. The Monitoring instruments such as examination, achievement test, and self-assessment practices are covered by schools and teachers.
The term instructional supervision is widely used in the literature to embody all efforts to the improvement of teaching and learning. Some authors use the term instructional supervision synonymously with general supervision. Meanwhile, Richard A Gorton (2003) stated that the core business of supervision is instructional leadership. Instructional leadership may be defined as those activities engaged by one or more individuals that have as their main purpose the improvement of a person, group, or instructional programme. The emphasis in this definition is on improvement, not merely maintenance, and on instructional leadership as opposed to other kinds of leadership.
While at the building level, an administrator is usually involved in a variety of situations that call for leadership. Probably the most important area for which an administrator has leadership responsibilities is the instructional programme. The instructional leadership programme comprises all of the factors and conditions within a school that influence students’ learning. Although the teacher is perhaps the most important instructional variable affecting student learning, other factors and conditions also play roles.
By understanding administrative and education leader roles, school principals and supervisors will be more responsible for efficient school management. The leadership role has a function to ensure that successful learning can take place for all the pupils in the school. As a school leader, the school principal needs to ensure that every task is actually carried out on time and in a proper manner. Furthermore, the school principals and supervisors need to supervise and to administer all the works in the school.
For this reason, the course on Science Classroom Supervision is relevant to those who lead schools as it will improve their competencies and capacities that help them achieving effective school management. This, at the end, will bring schools to contribute significantly in shaping people to be a scientific society.
