Group and Peer Supervision

Back to all

Group and Peer Supervision

This subject introduces students to the principles and practice of group and peer supervision which complement individual professional and pastoral supervision.

The subject complements our Graduate Certificate in Professional Supervision and is recommended as the next step after completion of that course. This subject is only available as a single subject study for students who have graduated from the Graduate Certificate in Professional Supervision or have completed previous CSU prerequisite subjects. 

This subject will help you grow skills in facilitating group and peer supervision. You will learn how group and peer supervision can optimise reflective learning processes. The subject also provides supervisors with opportunities to continue professional development in their supervision practice, and enhance the importance of collaborative peer networks for advanced professional supervisors.

This subject is offered through Charles Sturt University’s School of Theology. It is also one of our subjects in our Ministry courses. Successful subject completion of this subject is creditable towards a Graduate Certificate in Ministry and Master of Ministry for eligible applicants.

Single Subject Study gives you the flexibility and the credit, without the commitment of a full degree. It’s a great way to dip your toe into a subject area and get a sense of what it’s like to study theology in an academic setting.

As a student, you get to access all subject materials and resources and gain access to CSU’s Interact2 learning environment – so you can study online from the comfort of your natural environment and work around your other life and work commitments.

Best of all, these subjects require no prerequisites, prior knowledge or experience. But if you do decide to commit to a related degree at the end of this subject study, our course advisor can help guide you through the application process and help get credit from your successful subject(s) towards your degree.

This subject will cover the following topics:
  • Introduction to theories and models of group and peer supervision
  • Survey of contemporary practices of group and peer supervision
  • Comparative group and peer-based approaches (e.g., coaching, mentoring, spiritual direction)

The subject is taught by a ‘live’ lecturer on campus and online. Online lectures are not pre-taped; you will be privy to in-class discussions. All our lecturers are experienced and qualified in their area.

Classes are live-streamed so you can engage in real-time with the lecturer and your classmates. This is especially important as ministry study is best done in community. Can’t make that time? You can also access recordings of classes later through Interact2 .

Charles Sturt University’s online learning platform, Interact2, gives clear guidance, e-readings, teacher’s notes, and more.

This subject will also require students to complete assessments.
