Learning Coaches: One Alberta Model
Learning Coaches (who may also go by titles such as Instructional Coaches, Consultants, Lead Teachers, Literacy/Numeracy Coaches, Technology Integration Facilitators, and the like) are education professionals who collaborate with teachers to choose and implement research-based interventions for the betterment of student learning.
Inclusive education PD resources includes multiple resources to support learning coaches – including new videos focused on Literacy and Numeracy content coaching. Based on requests from the ERLC region, the Instructional Coaching Team from Black Gold Regional School Division No. 18 developed a website https://sites.google.com/site/learningcoachesonealbertamodel/ to share research based strategies, tips and reflections on their process of creating and operating a learning coach program.
