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: Peer Coaching Slideshow

Brightspace Peer Coaches

Extra assistance with Brightspace is now available through an expanded CTL Online Peer Coaching program.  There are currently 17 faculty peer coaches representing all six of the schools who are already working with faculty individually to support Spring preparations for teaching in Brightspace.  

Peer Coaching is confidential and non-evaluative. Coaches are available to assist with the following:
  • help with Brightspace features and tools,
  • help with preparing your Spring classes in Brightspace,
  • questions you might have about best practices for teaching online
...all in a safe, collegial environment. The coach's role is to support you in creating the best experience for your students online, whatever you might need individually to do that.
See a list of coaches. You can contact a coach directly or you can send an email to CTL@cnm.edu to request online peer coaching.
