The ICT Peer Coaching program developed by Microsoft is grounded in research and designed to build the capacity of teachers and leaders. Peer coaching is a process by which teachers work with one another to share expertise and provide feedback, support and assistance. Using the coaching methodology, the program is tailored to both teacher and whole school goals, specifically in achieving the vision for teaching and learning in each education context.
The purpose of the course is to support educators to design a strategic plan for coaching, as well as how to be effective coaches and leaders of learning in their schools. The course aims at providing opportunities to take theory into practice as a coach, as well as gain new knowledge and skills of 21st Century learning and leveraging digital platforms to their full potential.
Upon completion of the course, those who are accredited are able to facilitate the course back in their schools by teaching others to be coaches. This provides a unique opportunity for schools to improve teaching and learning practices in a sustainable way, over time.
The ICT Peer Coaching course runs for three days. Click on each day below to get an overview of what we will cover.
Leaders of learning will walk away with knowledge and understanding of how to integrate 21CLD and technology into the curriculum, along with the skills to coach others to improve curriculum design. Upon completion of the course, participants will receive the internationally recognised ICT Peer Coaching Facilitator Training accreditation from Microsoft. This enables school leaders to train others to be coaches, to continue the change process within their school.
