Some of the benefits of peer coaching for teacher professional development

Recommended by Greg Carroll, this video has some real gems about the benefits of peer coaching to move beyond advocacy into inquiry. The speaker talks of how teachers working and planning together, while also offering support and asking questions, impacts teaching practice in ways that generic workshops don't. Also important was duration. Because the programme works over an extended period of time, there is time to trial, reflect and evaluate, then to tweak, and trial again.

Love the bit about balancing inquiry and advocacy- erring on the side of inquiry. AND the need for trust in the learning relationships.

I agree :) Greg and I were discussing it and saying it would be a good one to dip into when facilitating sessions with groups. He's a pretty erudite speaker, as well as appearing no-nonsense! Greg was thinking he'd be an interesting speaker for ULearn too.
