Jessica Wise
Consultant, Instructional Coaching Group

Jessica began her educational career in Gwinnett County, Georgia, as an elementary school teacher. After seven years of teaching fourth grade, she transitioned into the role of an intervention teacher and instructional coach, where she found her true passion in education. Becoming a school-based instructional coach opened new possibilities for how to support education. After serving her school for two years as a coach, she joined the Curriculum & Instruction department where she served as a Literacy Instructional Specialist, and then a Leadership & Staff Development Instructional Coach. Jessica’s true passion exists in the learning spaces where adults can explore instructional coaching and facilitation that prioritizes people and energizes educators.

A learning design to enable praxis

When we are engaged in praxis we are reflecting in action – taking what we are learning and applying it in real-life situations. Our course enables praxis through a 'coaching approach' to facilitation combined with a range of thoughtfully designed adult learning experiences including:

  • individual and group reflection activities
  • co-operative learning tasks
  • practice opportunities using real workplace scenarios
  • modeling
  • observation and feedback
  • debrief sessions

The option of a spaced learning design consisting of live interactive workshops complemented by self-paced modules on our Learning Management System (LMS) provides the opportunity for participants to apply skills and techniques in their context between sessions.

On-demand Access

For individuals with schedule conflicts or who live in different time zones, these virtual sessions are recorded and available for registrants to watch on-demand for 30 days.
