Child Trends
Coaching and other on-site, individualized professional development strategies (consultation, mentoring, and technical assistance) are promising approaches to support the application of new teaching practices and overall quality improvement among practitioners in early care and education settings. This Research Brief summarizes a recent report synthesizing findings from a literature review and a multi-case study of coaching in Quality Rating and Improvement Systems (QRIS) to understand more about the practice of coaching and whether features of coaching can be identified that are linked to positive outcomes for practitioners and children. This brief concludes with an overview of implications for QRIS policy and practice. (Contains 4 footnotes.)
