Having strong educational leadership is known to be a major factor in improving student learning. By providing vision and development opportunities, educational leaders can help facilitate the conditions necessary for teachers to perform at their best.
Realising that to improve the quality of mathematics education in Southeast Asia there needs to be strong leaders, SEAQiM developed the course on Clinical Supervision.
This course aims to advance the skills of educational leaders in clinical supervision. This includes skills in (1) developing professionalism, (2) monitoring teaching quality, and (3) developing motivation. The Clinical Supervision course requires participants to have knowledge in mathematics education and be in a leadership role (e.g. school principal, head of mathematics, etc.).
