What will I keep doing?
I will maintain the relational trust that exists between me and my team. I believe this is an important aspect of peer coaching as it establishes and environment where staff feel comfortable to discuss, share and improve practice in a non-threatening way.
What will I take into my practice?
That peer coaching removes the idea of “the expert” and that the coach and coach-ee have an opportunity to learn from each other.
Who can I work with? Chat with?
I will work with my coach-ees and can draw upon other colleagues who have completed the Peer Coaching course such as Emily (HAT) and Gail (Principal). Also, the Peer Coach Facilitators and peers in the course (via Edmodo).
What would I do differently?
What do I need to think about?
- Which goals to use to inform the coaching process - stage goals or personal goals addressing student outcomes? Perhaps both?
- How to incorporate coaching meetings into school routines
- Which online tool will I use with the coach-ees
- How can the coach-ees monitor their coaching process and share it with me using ICT?
