PEER COACH TRAINING

 Overview of Peer Coaching

The Peer Coaching program, sponsored by Microsoft, assists teacher leaders to develop the coaching skills essential to help their colleagues learn the necessary instructional strategies, understand pedagogical approaches and develop technology skills that are needed to integrate technology into active, engaging learning activities.  Peer Coaching is focussed on unlocking the capacity and potential that exists within a school and empowering teachers to have deeper conversations around effective learning. 

Peer Coaches help their colleagues learn by providing timely training or resources, co-planning learning activities, modelling effective teaching, observing colleagues and reflecting on what they observed. Peer Coaches encourage ongoing educator collaboration focused on improving student learning and help schools to develop the capacity to meet their professional learning needs.

 What is Peer Coaching?

Peer coaching is a process by which teachers work with one another to share expertise and provide feedback, support and assistance. The peer coach does not advise or tell. He or she asks questions and supports the learning partner to find their own answers.

The Benefits of Peer Coaching:

  • provides job-embedded professional feedback and support
  • promotes active learning by offering teachers opportunities to become involved in meaningful discussion and planning, observe other teachers, be observed, and receive feedback
  • offers teachers opportunities to link the ideas learned in professional learning sessions to their teaching context
  • is a collaborative partnership between peer coach and learning partner and not a mentor-novice relationship
  • builds capacity to lead learning within the school context.

 What’s involved?

 The Peer coach Program involves three days of face to face training supplemented by online meetings and content.  This forms two days of initial face to face training after which, coaches are also required to undertake work within their school to obtain accreditation.  A final day will consolidate learning and experience alongside planning for implementation.

 The Peer Coaching program is facilitated and subsidised by Digital Learning Branch and as such there is no cost to schools.  Schools will need to provide their own CRT coverage for participants. 

 The intake is strictly limited to 20 participants. 

 

When:                     13th and 21st October and the third day will be in 2016

Time:                       8.45 for a 9.00 start.  3.00 finish.

Where:                   150 Palmerston Street, Carlton, Vic, 3053

 

Requirements: Please bring along a computer to access the resources provided on a USB. 

Please also bring along a Unit of Work that you have taught and would like to develop further.
