This course is designed to help teachers engage in rigorous, collaborative conversations that utilise the power of video. Developed jointly with the Instructional Coaching Group, this course introduces a reciprocal collaborative cycle of coaching conversations that are based on the principles of partnership and trust. Classroom video is used to enhance the process by helping teachers to identify and monitor progress towards student-centred professional learning goals.
This course is designed to help teachers engage in rigorous, collaborative conversations that utilise the power of video.
While coaching is recognised as one of the most important and essential means for improving professional practice, not all schools have the resources for instructional coaches or leaders to work directly with all teachers in an ongoing way.
This course is designed to introduce coaching skills to all teaching staff so that they can work collaboratively with one another. The fact that coaching conversations involve reflecting on videos of teaching practice helps to ground goals in reality and keeps the process non-evaluative, rigorous and safe.
The Video Peer Coaching course is delivered in three stages:
Why video enhanced peer coaching?
Introduction to the Partnership Principles
Overview of the Growth Framework enhanced with video
Using video and preparation for fieldwork
Practise using video to be completed between first and second workshops.
Coaching skills to facilitate reflection and learning
Identifying student centred goals
Demonstration and practise of coaching cycle using video

At GCI, we believe that we act our way into learning rather than learn our way into acting. With this principle in mind, all of our courses have a strong emphasis on practice.
GCI courses are designed by educators for educators with a commitment to interactive and engaging learning experiences delivered by skilled facilitators with extensive experience in education.
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
practise opportunities using real workplace scenarios
observation and feedback
