Cognitive Coaching Seminars® Foundation Training

Overview

Cognitive Coaching℠ is a form of mediation that can be applied to professional interactions in a variety of settings and situations with the intention of enhancing self-directed learning. It is a composite of skills, strategies, maps, and tools as well as mental models and beliefs. It is also a model for classroom mediation to enhance students’ self-directed learning. Research on Cognitive Coaching℠ has linked its implementation to increased student achievement, greater teacher efficacy and satisfaction, higher levels of teacher cognition and professional, collaborative cultures. As a result of engaging in the Foundational Training, participants will develop understanding of two structured conversations for planning and reflecting. In addition, they will develop knowledge and skills for expanding teacher thinking.
