|Dr Kerryn Griffiths >>> Professional Coach & Educator|
In 2011, a post-graduate learning-centred coaching course taught by Dr Kerryn Griffiths is planned to be offered as a professional development module by the Queensland University of Technology Faculty of Education, in coordination with its Masters of Education program.
Coaching is increasingly being recognised as a tool for improved educational leadership, teaching and learning. Coaching capability enhances leadership and deepens and accelerates learning. Learning-centred coaching provides a vehicle for leadership and learning that integrates multiple learning theories within the one approach. The technology age in which students live demands that teachers become more than a means of information transfer and adopt the behaviour of a coach. This unit explains what it means to be a coach and develops coaching competency among educators in leadership, support and classroom roles.
