I understand why there is direct supervision in workplaces and environments where you need discipline and experience for security and health reasons. But sometimes, so much supervision might not be necessary.
When I was in athletic training, for example, we were under direct supervision all the time. Of course, there should be some supervision, in case something goes wrong. But I feel that in an environment where you are trying to learn and experiment with new things, direct supervision can be a bit limiting if it's overdone.
What do you think?
