Our friend and colleague, Nicole Turner, (Simply Coaching & Teaching) is conducting a doctoral dissertation study at Oakland City University on the topic of instructional coaching. She is encouraging all instructional coaches to provide their feedback on the survey, Instructional Coaches Perceptions of Professional Development as an Instructional Coach.
The purpose of the study is to gain insight into how instructional coaches feel about the support they receive from their districts or schools in developing themselves for the role of a coach. The results from the study will be used to explore how PD opportunities can be improved for instructional coaches in order to prepare them for their coaching roles. There are no anticipated risks to participants, and identifiable information is not collected.
The survey will take no more than 15 minutes, and your responses will be completely confidential. At the end of the survey, you will have the option to enter a drawing for one of two $25 Amazon gift cards as a token of her appreciation for your time and willingness to help.
Please consider forwarding this survey to your colleagues who are instructional coaches. The more survey respondents, the better we can understand and improve professional development for instructional coaches.
