Review: The Coach, Eduro Learning

[Disclaimer: Kim Cofino is a friend of mine and I highly respect her work!]

Above the previous months I have had the extraordinary privilege of expending a whole lot of time with Kim Cofino and her tutorial coaching team at Eduro Studying. Not in man or woman – Kim is in Bangkok, Thailand, and her team is all around the globe – but on the net. Lately I have been leaning into the undertaking of boosting my educational coaching knowledge and skillsets, so I signed up for Eduro Learning’s yearlong on-line program, The Mentor.

The Mentor has more than a dozen modules. Each individual module generally has several models, and each unit has numerous different tabs in just it. All in all, there are a lot of dozens of pursuits, movies, worries, and reflections, and hundreds of accompanying means. A unit usually commences with a Significant Strategy this kind of as Coaches have the obligation to guarantee fairness in their do the job – for all local community stakeholders. That large plan usually is accompanied by a single to five video clips (sometimes with visitors like Ken Shelton or Alysa Perreras!). Other tabs in the unit may include things like an Introduction with more data (e.g., expected finding out outcomes, necessary inquiries, enduring understandings, and necessary vocabulary), Vital Resources, and the always-essential Motion tab. Every unit also is aligned to pertinent specifications from the Coaching Competency Practice Profile (CCPP) and the International Culture for Know-how in Education (ISTE) Standards for Coaches. 

Kim and her crew have recognized and curated a wonderful set of resources. The Mentor is made to be a 12-thirty day period knowledge, so there is a good deal of time to dig deep into all that they have furnished. I know that I will be returning typically to the different readings, applications, and protocols as I continue to check out and bolster my personal coaching expertise. Because Kim and her staff have tapped into numerous different coaching frameworks, I was exposed to concepts and methods from Jim Knight, Diane Sweeney, ISTE, and other folks all through the course.

One of the core elements of The Mentor is a personalized project. Members identify a present educational coaching goal and then work to employ it all through the study course. Together the way, they join it to what they are mastering and have many possibilities to reflect, share, and get comments. Kim and her group have finished a great task of scaffolding this operate so that it does not appear too much to handle.

One of the items that I appreciated the most about The Mentor was its differentiation when it came to motion techniques and reflections. Kim and her team have been pretty considerate about generating prompts and motion tasks that are diverse for aspiring, new, or knowledgeable educational coaches. Each individual of these groups has diverse requires, and members in The Coach can easily pick out which reflections and steps best fit their latest job.

I signed up for the self-paced selection, but there is also a cohort possibility that contains frequent, ongoing conferences and mentorship. Kim and her staff are superb instructional coaches and I would motivate folks to decide on that alternative if you can make it function with your program.

The Mentor is a great deal (in a great way). It is a little bit expensive but also particularly comprehensive and nicely worthy of the expense. I by no means when questioned the dollars I expended mainly because I was acquiring a ton of benefit out of the understanding experience. I did not pursue the certification choice simply because I’m not in a present-day coaching position and do not really need to have it, but the opportunities to mirror along the way and get responses from Kim and her crew are priceless and truly worth the time expended in the cohort and on the accompanying participant workbook.

I learned a great deal from The Coach. The course was both equally wide-ranging and deep, and gave me quite a few factors to get the job done on and think about. Thanks, Kim and workforce!
