Partnering Principal and Teacher Candidates: Exploring a Virtual Coaching Model in Teacher Education
Stapleton, Joy; Tschida, Christina; Cuthrell, Kristen
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, v25 n4 p495-519 Oct 2017
Colleges of education are constantly searching for innovations to develop stronger graduates. This paper describes and shares findings from a study of a virtual coaching partnership model that links a principal candidate with a teacher candidate. Through the use of existing virtual coaching software, this model provides teacher candidates with timely, specific feedback on their teaching while allowing principal candidates to hone their evaluation and feedback practices. Specifically, the nature of the feedback varied between teacher and principal candidates while both principal and teacher candidates found the virtual coaching model beneficial and the software helpful.
