Byrne, A.M., & Hartley, M. T. (2010). Digital Technology in the 21st Century: Considerations for Clinical Supervision in Rehabilitation Education. Rehabilitation Education, 24, 57-68.
From the Abstract: Technological innovations are increasingly affecting the delivery of clinical supervision. Yet there is limited information on how supervisors can use digital technology to broaden settings in which students record client interviews, enhance evaluation of students’ clinical performance, and increase accessibility for students with disabilities. This article addresses methods and issues in the use of emerging digital recording technologies, such as pocket size iPods, Flip Cameras, and smart phones. A description of one rehabilitation counselor education program illustrates how digital recording technology can be integrated into traditional and distance clinical supervision.
This was a fun article to write and I can’t wait to collect some data on the effectiveness of iPods and other forms of digital recorders in clinical supervision and counselor education.
