Target Audience: Instructional coaches, administrators who support coaching(Ideally teams of coaches and administrators)
Instructional coaching has the potential to improve instructional practices and student outcomes. However, in practice, coaching outcomes often fall short of our hopes. Coaches need to be skilled in facilitating adult learning, but also their systems of support need to provide them with the vision, space, and time necessary to make their partnerships impactful. In this workshop, coaches and/or their administrators will understand issues within a system that undermine coaching (such as: consistency, role clarity, time, and support) and develop strategies to mitigate them.
In this one-day workshop, participants will:
· Explore and understand six key issues that undermine instructional coaching partnerships.
· Assess their own coaching system in relation to the key issues.
· Learn strategies to mitigate the key issues.
· Develop an action plan to improve support for coaching in their own context.
Note: It would be beneficial (but not mandatory) for coaches and administrators to attend together as there will be time to think about coaching in their setting.
