The Instructional Coaching Group

We began studying the impacts of instructional coaching over 20 years ago. Through the years, we’ve seen the difference coaching can make. Our mission is to partner with you and foster growth in your career—helping you teach, coach, and lead.

TLC Conference

Our yearly Teaching Learning Coaching Conference serves as the industry’s leading learning experience for anyone in the education field. We’ll see you in October!

Intensive Institutes

Intensive Institutes take place in Lawrence, Kansas over the course of 5 days. Typically limited to smaller groups, these Institutes allow participants to work closely with Jim and the ICG consultants.

Workshops

ICG’s workshops can be hosted at your organization when you need them, or at our home-base in Kansas, and they’re always led by ICG-certified consultants.

The Latest in Instructional Coaching

The Instructional Playbook: The Missing Link for Translating Research into Practice

The idea of an instructional playbook has caught fire since Jim described it in The Impact Cycle (Knight, 2017). This book helps educators create playbooks that produce a common language about high-impact teaching strategies, deepen everyone’s understanding of what instructional coaches do, and, most important, support teachers and students in classrooms.
