Learn How To Help Others Become Self-Directed In Their Work
Cognitive Coaching Seminars®
Teaching is a complex intellectual activity, with researchers showing that those who think at higher levels produce students who are higher achieving, more co-operative and better problem solvers.
Often it’s the invisible skills of teaching – the thinking processes that underlie instructional decisions – that assist teachers to perform at the highest level.
This eight-day premier coaching program, Cognitive Coaching®, pioneered by Art Costa and Bob Garmston, has been transforming the professional and personal lives of educators around the globe for over 30 years.
