Instructional Coaching (INST540)

Instructional coaching is a vital element in student-centered instruction and helps instructors to better serve students, continually evolve and transform their instructional practices, and set meaningful goals. Coaches at Franklin University engage in a specific coaching subset called dialogical coaching, especially suited to the University's mission and values, and this course will help learners to both understand and execute that formal coaching process. This course will certify learners as Franklin University Instructional Coaches (ICs) who will collaborate with and enable coaching recipients (CRs) through a series of methods and processes to continually grow in their practice and offer students a high-quality learning experience.
