Course: The Essential Guide for Student-Centered Coaching
I was enrolled in the Self-Paced: The Essential Guide for Student-Centered Coaching. I personally liked learning online at my own pace. It felt like I got the same information had I been sitting in front of her during a class. There are very beneficial articles and downloads that will be a great benefit to me as a first time instructional coach for my district.
This course was extremely helpful in moving my coaching work to the next level. I appreciated the timely feedback from the instructors and the opportunity to discuss the course content with other participants through online posts and comments. The Essential Guide for Student-Centered Coaching (Sweeney and Harris) has many valuable tools to help navigate coaching. I will definitely be recommending this book and course to all of my coaching colleagues!
Great course to accompany the book. It brought the ideas and suggestions from the book to life and the opportunity to discuss with other coaches was invaluable. I highly recommend taking this course!
Course: Building Principal and Coach Partnerships
Student Centered Coaching is providing a much needed structure to my work as a rookie Instructional Coach! I have really appreciated these self-paced learning opportunities to reflect on new knowledge and make an explicit plan to implement this information next year. Diane's books and tools are giving me confidence to head into a new school year ready to partner with my teacher colleagues and generate student growth!
This course helped me create a plan for how I will work with my instructional coach. I appreciated taking the course with my coach so we can plan how we will work together to get a bigger impact out of the coaching role.
We are so busy that it can be hard to find time to collaborate with my principal and this course gave me that opportunity. We were able to work through how our roles will overlap and what my duties will be when we return to school.
