As we plan for the next school year, education leaders are faced with many competing priorities, including supporting, retaining, and developing their teachers. School districts across the country successfully tackle these common challenges by embracing and investing in effective instructional coaching practices and we are excited to share tangible steps on how your district can, too. In this edWebinar, you learn from Gainesville ISD’s Executive Director of Curriculum & Instruction Dana Dudenhoeffer about proven strategies for supporting, empowering, and retaining your teachers. The conversation is facilitated by Teaching Channel’s Chief Academic Officer Dr. Wendy Amato.

View this edWebinar to learn best practices for coaching teachers through mentorship and PLCs, important considerations for the professional development of teachers, methods for elevating new teachers, opportunities to improve the retention of teachers throughout their programs, and how utilizing video can support these efforts. The presenters share specific examples and walk-through techniques.

This session specifies high-impact instructional practices and explores criteria that help schools and leaders prioritize the use of their resources. School and district leaders walk away with actionable ideas for implementation and an understanding of how to use video-based self-reflection, peer feedback via PLCs, exemplar videos, and coaching support to improve teacher practice.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 school leaders, district leaders, and education technology leaders.
