Peer Coaching: Professional Development through Reflection and Collegiality

Peer Coaching is a supportive, confidential, and non-evaluative professional development activity focusing on teacher self-reflection and growth.  Several CNM Faculty members have completed training to serve as Faculty Peer Coaches. The primary role of a peer coach is to facilitate the self-reflection and self-evaluation of a peer, while withholding judgment and refraining from providing unsolicited solutions.

This model has been developed because research indicates that individuals learn the most from their own experiences, rather than from explicit, formal instruction.  However, this self-evaluation is more productive and effective when undertaken with colleagues.  Learn more about how Peer Coaching can support your teaching at CNM by viewing these slides:
