Competitive Grant Programs
Peer coaching is professional development in which two or more educators work together ― one coaching the other ― to improve instructional practice. As colleagues in the same school, they share classroom experiences, observe and team teach in each other’s classrooms.
The EPC grant program, funded under the provisions of Title II, Part D, Enhancing Education through Technology (EETT), will phase out once Cadre 3 trainees complete their final year of professional development — 2011-2012 school year.
Here's important information for Cadre 3, Year 2 Coaches.
Fee-Based Peer Coach Training Through Your ETSC
Although EETT has come to a close, the same high-quality training is available regionally through Educational Technology Support Centers. Based on the original Microsoft peer coaching curriculum, expert staff at the ESD-based Educational Technology Support Centers (ETSC) lead this two-year course of professional development. The “enhanced” in Enhanced Peer Coaching refers to additional sessions spent to develop proficiency with specific technologies. Find out more.
