#educoachOC is a Twitter chat, at an Oceania-friendly time, for those in education interested in coaching in school and education contexts. It’s a sister chat to the northern-hemisphere-friendly #educoach and cousin to #satchatOC.
Our first chat ‘State of Play’ will explore where our coaching community is at. What are our coaching dreams and our coaching realities?
This is a chat for a professional community to learn from and with each other. Anyone with an interest in coaching in education, from any coaching sphere, is welcome. While there are many models of coaching, including peer coaching, instructional coaching, GROWTH coaching and cognitive coaching, we are interested in gaining shared understandings of the definitions, uses and impacts of coaching in education contexts.
In order to model coaching practice through the chat, we will use the GROWTH coaching model to frame the questions. We’ve chosen that model for its accessibility, clear structure and appropriateness for a Twitter context.
Please contact us via Twitter or by commenting on this blog to let us know what you think and what you’d like these chats to cover.
We hope you can join us for our first chat on Monday September 7 at 8.30pm AEST.
Chris, Corinne, Deb and Jon
