Coaching for Transformational Systems Change in Schools: an Online Course

This free professional learning opportunity is intended for educators who are new to coaching in schools as well as seasoned technical assistance providers interested in refining their repertoire of coaching skills. This course is a self-paced online professional learning opportunity; as such, starting and ending points are not fixed. Users may pause at any point to read the detail on a slide or reflect on its content. After completing a pre-assessment, users will proceed through each of the three modules at their own learning rate.

Successful completion of each of the modules requires viewing slides while listening to or reading content, reading two or three selected articles, answering several questions at the conclusion of each module, and pausing for personal reflection. You may engage with the content of the modules as an individual or with a group.
