TEACHER SUPERVISION AND THE CONCEPT OF
Motcho Prosper A TCHADE
Université d'Abomey-Calavi (FLASH)
Cet article a examiné les possibilités d'application et de gestion de la fonnation clinique en général et
de la fonnation participative en particulier.
L'examen de ces possibilités a fait apparaître la distinction qui existe entre l'approche autoritaire et
l'approche participative, deux approches qui sous-tendent la fonnation clinique.
Pour l'approche autoritaire, le fonnateur se comporte comme le seul détenteur du savoir et comme le
contrôleur autoritaire de la fonnation, alors que pour l'approche participative, le fonnateur éprouve beaucoup
d'égards pour l'enseignant qu'il est en train de fonner. Pour l'approche participative, le fonnateur ne joue pas
le rôle de quelqu'un qui évalue et qui note mais iljoue plutôt le rôle de quelqu'un qui comprend, qui établit un
rapport de confiance réciproque et qui est soucieux de contribuer efficacement à l'amélioration des pratiques
didactiques de l'enseignant dont il a la charge.
Mots clés: Formation clinique, formation participative en clinique axée sur la didactique,
approche autoritaire, approche participative.
Key word~ : Clinical supervision, collaborative clinical supervision, prescriptive approach,
