Why Do Coaches Need a Coach? 

There is a "professionl development gap" that seems to happen for instructional coaches - the gap between the expectations of, and the support for, the coaching role. 

The Coach Microcredential mentors, Kim and Diana discuss and share their insights about "the gap" and how instructional coaches are impacted.

Get a glimpse of the kinds of conversations our mentors are having in our YouTube series about instructional coaching. As a participant in The Coach Microcredential, you’ll be joining this community of international technology coaches, and participating in these types of deep learning conversations.

It’s always worth to spend money for professional development. The outcome and the learning depend on your effort and willingness to dig deeper. I like that Eduro Learning gives me a curation of different and reliable resources. The options regarding the action tasks give a lot of room for personification and with this ownership of your learning. It’s an advantage to learn from educators who are experienced and very knowledgeable.

Not only is the micro-credential taught by international educators who have their finger on the pulse of innovation and best practice but the cohorts are also made up of teachers all over the globe who share their own diverse set of experiences. You’ll quickly see the benefits once you start to grow your PLN, make authentic connections, and sharpen your communication and collaboration skills.

The self-pace option of the program was fine for a full-time school staff member.
