ECED 4203 - Coaching EC/ECE Professionals: Attuning for Personal and Organizational Change

Credits: (3)
Typically Taught Fall Semester: Full Sem
Description: The success of the educator coaching relationship has been based on the trusting relationship between two peers, coach, and adult learner, through a collaborative process of co-learning. The opportunity for the adult learner to self-monitor, self- analyze, and self-modify enhances the adult learner’s own resourcefulness and alters his/her own personal understanding. In addition, when the act of coaching is a collaborative process, the coach is also allowed the same opportunity to reflect on self as part of their learning. This course is designed to support the coach in creating a social learning climate where a synergy of shared learning and reflective dialogue about practice are examined, analyzed and refined. Participants will integrate skills from Course 1 and 2 with opportunities to engage in conducting and constructing ongoing support strategies the coach can apply, refine and alter based on the adult learners’ needs, readiness, and values about practice. Using strategies and protocols, coaching for organizational change in diverse settings (home- based programming, early care settings, classrooms, and school districts, etc.), and identifying effective ongoing personal supports will also be addressed. Students will apply these strategies to case studies and real life experiences throughout the course. This is course 3 of a three course series for the Utah Coaching Credential.
Pre-requisite(s): ECED 4201 /GSE 6201  and ECED 4202 /GSE 6202  or instructor permission.
