iTeach Courses

 

iTeach Professional Learning courses are designed for educators and administrators at all levels. Each four-week iTeach Professional Learning course is interactive and engaging, delivered completely online, and facilitated by an expert in the field. Each month we offer one facilitated course with open enrollment for individuals. Registration must be completed by the 25th of the previous month.

The courses can also be scheduled for your group. We have found that most school and districts prefer to send groups of teachers and administrators on their own schedule. The course content is still equivalent to 20 contact hours, but when all participants are from the same school or district, we can be more flexible with scheduling and can make adjustments in content to better meet your specific needs. To arrange for a group course, please email us at TIM@fcit.us.

TIMT-150: Coaching and Mentoring with the TIM-C


Coaching and mentoring are among the most powerful tools in any professional development program. While there many excellent models for implementing a guided, reflective practice program, all of these programs share some basic elements. The TIM Coaching Tool, or TIM-C, is an online tool for developing, tracking, and recording outcomes from coaching cycles. It provides an easy way to guide colleagues through a coaching cycle and document coaching work across a school or district.

This course provides an introduction to the TIM-C and coaching cycles, goal setting, planning and monitoring coaching activities, recording outcomes, and reflecting on the process. Regardless of the coaching model being used, the TIM-C can support consistent, guided, reflective practice across a school or district.
