The Fundamentals of Being an Effective UI Supervisor (Part 1)
Course # 595
Supervising @IOWA is designed for relatively new supervisors or as a comprehensive overview for more experienced supervisors. It is a certificate program that provides supervisors with professional development that focuses on the everyday practices that create a productive and respectful work environment. Participants learn practical skills and knowledge that enable them to increase their effectiveness in managing their team’s everyday performance with special focus on achieving results, service excellence and collaborating with others.
The Fundamentals of Being an Effective UI Supervisor is the first of six core Supervising @IOWA courses. This course is intended to welcome, excite and provide series participants with foundational leadership resources. It is our people that create our excellence in education, research and creative work, outreach, and health care. Our role as supervisors is to manage talent in a way that creates a respectful and productive environment. We hope you join us as we kick-off the Supervising @IOWA series with a fun, interactive class that focuses on the best practices of UI supervision.
We will be using a blended learning approach to this course’s curriculum. All participants are expected to complete the New UI Supervisors ICON course prior to attending this class. The online class will be used to guide class discussions and content.
