Implementing Teacher Coaching to Improve Classroom Practice and Student Learning

This sustained professional development course is designed to support teacher leaders and administrators who aim to provide instructional coaching to other teachers. Through this six-part online workshop and ongoing coaching, teachers and school leaders will learn about different coaching techniques and how to apply them to bring about meaningful growth. This course will help school leaders provide coaching experiences that support teachers in improving their practice through the development of problem solving, self-reflection and meaning-making skills.  

Participants will become more closely acquainted with three coaching stances: cognitive, collaborative and consulting. Using these stances as a framework, participants will be able to develop specific coaching plans for a wide variety of teachers at all experience levels and contexts.
