Join us for 3 x 90 minute twilight sessions led by Jack Tavassoly-Marsh to explore Instructional Coaching
Instructional coaching is an approach to teacher development that has a growing body of evidence to support it. This is the case because unlike some other forms of teacher development it focuses on the formation of new teacher habits over time. We know from psychology and behaviour science that this is essential if we want to bring about lasting change in our classrooms.
Jack has been working on instructional coaching in his own school. He will be sharing his knowledge of the theory behind instructional coaching, as well as sharing his insights into implementing the approach at a whole school level.
This programme of twilights will be ideal for school leaders who are responsible for teacher development and are interested in implementing an instructional coaching approach in their schools and will focus on:
- What is instructional coaching and why is it more effective than other forms of teacher development?
- Getting the culture and ethos right for instructional coaching.
- Getting the implementation of instructional coaching right.
