Instructional Coaching 

This foundational credential course in instructional coaching is for educators or educational leaders who want to develop or grow skills in coaching teachers in any PK-12 content area. Participants may be aspiring or current instructional coaches, teacher mentors, principals, or central office leaders. School teams are encouraged to engage in this course together to optimize the coaching impact. 

In this course, participants will develop foundational coaching knowledge, skills, and strategies in coaching cycles, asking questions and providing feedback, engaging in courageous conversations, building a culture and system for coaching, and ultimately improving teaching and learning. In this hybrid course, participants will meet four times in person over the course of approximately 12 weeks, access online resources, and apply and develop skills in the field between course sessions through a “learning by doing” course design. Participants will earn their credential or badge by demonstrating coaching practice within the sessions and through a videotaped coaching conversation.



Please register by September 10th to reserve your spot. Early registration is strongly encouraged to reserve your spot.
