The Learning Lab on Coaching for Practice Change provides a remote learning opportunity to explore how coaching can be supported by states and used within programs to improve implementation of evidence-based practices. The Learning Lab will provide information, resources, implementation approaches, and thoughtful discussions with experts and colleagues. Register for the series and attend one or all of the topical events and discussion groups.
The Learning Lab will consist of four on-line sessions offered from May through August of 2017. Each session will cover a key aspect or topic of coaching and will be divided into two parts. Part 1 will cover information and knowledge development of the topic area and Part 2 will be dedicated to in-depth follow-up discussion of issues and strategies.
All sessions will be held from 3:30 – 4:30 PM EDT. Recordings will be posted after sessions conclude along with relevant resources mentioned.
Dr. Patricia Snyder establishes why coaching on practices is important for ensuring fidelity of implementation of evidence-based practices, how research indicates are important components of an evidence-based, practice-based coaching framework, and how the practice-based coaching framework was developed, validated, and evaluated.
Dr. Mary Louise Hemmeter describes how effective teaching practices are the focus of practice-based coaching, the role of collaborative coaching partnerships, and the three components of practice-based coaching: shared goals and action planning, focused observation and reflection, and feedback.
