MACH Teach

Clinical Supervision Online

The EXCITE team at the University of Melbourne, led by Professor Steve Trumble, has developed the evidence-based Clinical Supervision Online program for the time-poor clinician.


The program, which has received excellent reviews through the pilot phase and early users of the module, is based on a mobile delivery platform allowing efficient and flexible completion. Key principles include learner-centred education, coaching for self-regulation, and generating a climate of trust, respect and safety to enable learning.

Module tutorials are suited to the busy emerging clinical educator and those who wish to do a refresher alike. The modules include:

• What is supervision?

• No-fuss theories

• Coaching clinical learners

• Learner-centred clinical supervision

• The challenging learner

• The reflective supervisor
