Coaching Conversations for Improved Practice

Thursday, Feb. 11th 2016 at 9-11am

This is an online event.

Target Audience

Principals and Assistant Principals.


Webinar Description

In this time of significant importance for the North Carolina Educator Evaluation System (NCEES), it is critical that principals provide teachers with coaching feedback to support their growth. This interactive webinar takes a look at the reasons we avoid difficult conversations with our teachers. Administrators build their skills using the North Carolina Teacher Evaluation Process to provide specific and constructive feedback to teachers. Participants will learn specific techniques for facilitating relevant coaching conversations and follow-up using the three P’s (promote, probe and push) of supporting improvement. A note guide and additional resources will be emailed to registered participants on the day of the webinar to support participant learning.
