Instructional Design Methods for Ethical Supervision Practices
Supervision practices have become an ethical pain point for behavior analysis over the past several years, with issues of supervision being one of the most reported and founded ethical violations according to the BACB®. Given that the field is growing at exponential rates, the need for quality supervision has never been more apparent. In this discussion, Dr. Shane T. Spiker will discuss how we can use instructional design methods to build supervision practices that are not only quality, but ethical in their application. Instructional design is one of the most powerful design tools at a behavior analyst's disposal though it is rarely attended to in an intentional way. Through the use of instructional design methods, behavior analytic supervisors can effectively reduce ethical dilemmas by creating quality supervision programs.
Participants will be able to:
- Define and describe instructional design methods as they related to behavioral outcomes
- Identify common ethical violations that occur within supervision practices
- Design elements of supervision practices using instructional design methods
- Develop preventative practices that reduce supervision related ethical dilemmas
