About The Impact Cycle

Designed around the key themes of the book - The Impact Cycle: What Instructional Coaches Should Do to Foster Powerful Improvements in Teaching - the aim of this course is to support educators in establishing instructional coaching cycles that lead to improved teaching and student learning. The course is for anyone who works alongside teachers to help them develop their practice. The Impact Cycle also provides educational leaders with a model of instructional leadership that enables teacher agency.

Participants will explore the following questions: 

  • What are the Partnership Principles and should I ground my coaching in them? 
  • What should be my approach to coaching? 
  • How do instructional coaches identify goals with teachers? 
  • How should instructional coaches go about explaining and modelling teaching strategies? 
  • How do coaches partner with teachers to make adaptations until goals are met? 


Structure
Learning Design

Research-informed, Practitioner-focused is an important principle that underpins all our work at GCI, and this course is no exception. 

The Impact Cycle instructional coaching course is the culmination of more than two decades of research on instructional coaching, communication and professional development by Dr Jim Knight and colleagues at The University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning 


When we are engaged in praxis we are reflecting in action – taking what we are learning and applying it in real-life situations. Our in-person and online courses enable praxis through a ‘coaching approach’ to facilitation combined with a range of thoughtfully designed adult learning experiences including:

  • individual and group reflection activities
  • co-operative learning tasks
  • practice opportunities using real workplace scenarios
  • modelling
  • observation and feedback
  • debrief sessions


The Impact Cycle course is available in a range of delivery patterns:

  • Two full days (in-person)
  • Full days or six 2-hour workshops spread over a number of weeks (in-house groups online only)
Certification

A GCI Certificate is issued to each individual completing this course.
