Even the best educator, no matter how many years they’ve been on the job, can get better. That’s the foundation of Rockdale County Public Schools’ (GA) professional learning program. An important part of their ongoing personalized, job-embedded support for the district’s teachers and staff is video-based coaching.

Tune in to this edLeader Panel to hear from Ursala Maddox Davis, Teacher Effectiveness Coordinator for Rockdale, about how their collaborative coaching model is helping the district achieve its goals — from increasing teacher retention to implementing evidence-based instructional practices that lead to student growth and achievement. Mrs. Davis will be joined by Dr. Paula Bevan, a consultant for school improvement through teaching excellence. Together, they will discuss:

  • The impact of coaching on teacher effectiveness
  • Recent research on the benefits of video coaching
  • Why having a secure professional learning management system is an important part of successful video-based coaching
  • Steps for designing a coaching program that supports teacher autonomy
  • How to build momentum for video coaching

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from one district’s journey to support their team’s professional growth through high-leverage coaching strategies.

This edLeader Panel will be of interest to PreK-12 teachers, school and district leaders, as well as Education Technology Leaders, Professional Learning Directors and Coordinators. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
