Cognitive Coaching Seminars

TIE invites you to attend Cognitive Coaching Seminars® Days 1 through 4

As an educator, you’re always striving to cause your teachers and students to think while taking responsibility for their learning. You hear the words coach, motivator, mentor and wonder what do those roles really mean when helping students become self-directed learners.

In Cognitive Coaching Seminars®, you will learn the art of using skills, tools and maps to have successful conversations with your students, colleagues and family that will guide them to use the resources they already have and learn where to find the resources they don’t have.

The mission of Cognitive Coaching is to produce self-directed persons with the cognitive capacity for excellence both independently and as members of a community. Research indicates that teaching is a complex intellectual activity and that teachers who think at higher levels produce students who are higher achieving, more cooperative, and better problem solvers. It is the invisible skills of teaching, the thinking processes that underlie instructional decisions, which produce superior instruction. Cognitive Coaching is a research-based model that capitalizes upon and enhances teachers’ cognitive processes.

Graduate credit and Continuing Education Units will be available.

MaryLou McGirr, TIE Learning Specialist and Training Associate with ThinkingCollaborate, will facilitate the training.
