the intensive instructional coaching institute

The Intensive Instructional Coaching Institute (IICI) is a 5-day retreat based on 20+ years of research, led by the founder of instructional coaching, Jim Knight. This is our most popular offering; it includes a comprehensive professional development opportunity covering five coaching areas presented in Jim Knight’s bestselling books and research, and takes place right in Jim’s hometown.

This unique learning opportunity helps coaches and administrators develop a deeper understanding of the coaching process and practices, cultivate the necessary communication skills for healthy conversations, deepen engagement in the classroom, and best utilize coaching tools and resources.

Who should attend?

  • New instructional coaches
  • Veteran instructional coaches who want a refresher course
  • Administrators developing coaching programs
  • Administrators who want to support their coaches

Where is the Institute?

The institutes take place at the beautiful and historic Oread Hotel in Lawrence, Kansas. A room block is reserved, allowing for guests to comfortably stay on-site at the same location as the institute.

The city of Lawrence boasts a rich history; it was founded in the 1850’s as the state’s resistance to slavery and was built on a commitment to education and civility. Because of this, we’re proud to make Lawrence the home of our Intensive Instructional Coaching Institute.
