12pm PT - 1pm MT - 2pm CT - 3pm ET
Coaching is a process in which an experienced practitioner or consultant observes, instructs, and provides feedback--on a regular basis--to a less experienced practitioner, to ensure that he or she is implementing a program or practice correctly. Research indicates that coaching is an important supplement to group training events in developing teachers' capacity to implement evidence-based practices. It has been estimated that after teachers learn about a new strategy, observe it being demonstrated, and practice it, only about 5% will actually implement it consistently in the classroom. When coaching is added, this estimate rises to 95% (Joyce & Showers, 2002). This webinar will review coaching best practices and describe coaching resources being developed by NCDB.
Participants will become aware of:
- Coaching best practices
- Coaching materials created by NCDB
- Ways to use the materials to increase the skills of professionals working with children who are deaf-blind
- Kristi Probst, Intervener and Qualified Personnel Initiative Lead, National Center on Deaf-Blindness
- Carlie R. Rhoads, NLCSD Scholar, Peabody College, Vanderbilt University Program in Visual Disabilities
