Student-Centred Coaching Series
Presented by: Diane Sweeney
Located at: Executive Royal Hotel
2828-23 Street NE, Calgary, AB
About the Session

Recommended Audience: K-12 Instructional Coaches (released to coach at least 50% of the time), School Leaders, and District Leaders

Please join Diane Sweeney, author of Student-Centered Coaching: The Moves (Corwin, 2016) and Leading Student-Centered Coaching (Corwin, 2018) to learn how to implement an evidence-based instructional coaching model that focuses on collaborating with teachers to increase student outcomes. Taking a data-driven approach increases the efficacy of teachers, coaches, and most importantly our students. To get there, we must not only create a culture for coaching, but also establish clarity around the principal and coach partnership. For this reason, we recommend for school leaders and coaches to attend as a team.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn the core practices for Student-Centered Coaching
  • Understand how to establish a culture for coaching
  • Build principal and coach partnerships that increase the impact of coaching
  • Learn how to measure the impact of coaching on teaching and learning
  • Develop systems and structures to get the most out of a coaching program
  • Engage in team planning that is designed support participants to reflect upon, and refine, their coaching program
