The Coach

This academic-year-long online mentorship program includes 26 weeks of course content learning (divided into 8 key themes for successful instructional coaching) which enable you to immediately implement your learning within your own school setting. Highly experienced and approachable mentors provide ongoing support via weekly emails, regular video conference meetings, and forum feedback.

Completing this microcredential will:

  • Strengthen your coaching practice by building your own customized coaching toolkit;
  • Skyrocket and hone your leadership skills to become a more confident instructional leader in your school;
  • Accelerate your professional growth with a personalized and connected community; and
  • Transform student and teacher learning through the use of technology.

Each course includes video lessons, a selection of highly curated resources, and an action task for participants to complete, along with an opportunity to reflect in our private community forums. The micro credential culminates in a personal project which is customized for each participant’s individual goals and needs.

In order to provide a highly customized deep learning experience, our micro credentials are offered only once a year and follow a cohort model. This allows each participant to determine the order of the courses they take, while still building a learning community of like-minded educators within our private discussion forums.

Because we are a global company, we know that our participants are in a variety of time zones, so you can complete the coursework whenever is convenient to you and connect with your mentor at times that work for both of you. In general, we recommend that you anticipate 5 hours of learning time per week.

The Coach Microcredential is designed for teachers, leaders and/or instructional coaches who want to take a deep dive into instructional coaching in a school setting. Courses can be taken for re-certification credit to be applied towards teacher license renewal (in the US), or simply for professional growth. Participants receive a certificate of completion that can be used for future job applications in the field of instructional coaching.

What Current Participants Have to Say …

This is one of the most relevant and robust PD programs I have participated in. The curation of resources and information alone is worth it! I love learning and connecting and learning with others in similar roles all over the world has been invigorating. However, the mentoring piece of the program is my favorite and for my learning style, invaluable! My mentor responds quickly with answers and provides additional resources and links. She makes herself available and supports me in what I am needing at the time.

Jennifer Chambers

Instructional Tech Facilitator

It’s always worth to spend money for professional development. The outcome and the learning depend on your effort and willingness to dig deeper. I like that Eduro Learning gives me a curation of different and reliable resources. The options regarding the action tasks give a lot of room for personification and with this ownership of your learning. It’s an advantage to learn from educators who are experienced and very knowledgeable.

Verena Zimmer

Educational Technology Coach

Jennifer and Camlynn, both instructional coaches from Everett School District in Everett, WA, USA, are participants in the Premium level of The Coach Microcredential, working with Kim Cofino as their mentor.

It’s a fresh, flexible, and adaptable program that changes your perspective on what you can do in the classroom. Not only is the micro-credential taught by international educators who have their finger on the pulse of innovation and best practice but the cohorts are also made up of teachers all over the globe who share their own diverse set of experiences. You’ll quickly see the benefits once you start to grow your PLN, make authentic connections, and sharpen your communication and collaboration skills.

Nick Garvin

International School Educator

The resources and the support are like no other program out there and you deserve and owe it to yourself to have access to all of it! I could not imagine doing this school year as a 1st time coach and our district going 1:1 without Eduro and the Microcredential.
