“Contribute to the development, communication, and implementation of a shared vision for the comprehensive use of technology to support a digital-age education for all students.”
- My peer coaching experience built on a prior relationships with my college, Robbin. Robbin submitted a conference proposal and we worked together to enhance and expand on her work. Her conference proposal was based on a session she presented at SPU and the title of the presentation was, “Working for Justice in a Digital World: From Internet Activism to Digital Citizenship.”
- This experience provided the opportunity to develop my peer coaching sills; such as, helping the peer develop their own action, come to understanding on their own–i.e., not giving them the answer by using prodding questions, and reflective prompts. The peer coaching experience provided an opportunity to listen carefully to Robbin’s ideas, needs, concerns, and struggles in such a way that provided support, encouragement, and encourage Robbin to build her own capacity.
- Peer coaching is a helpful framework that contributes to the university teaching and learning process by pairing professors with a peer mentor. Peer coaching doesn’t consist of the mentor providing the answers to the the professor, but rather it is about helping the professor build their own capacity to develop new skills and produce transformation.
- Peer coaching provides the opportunity to create a shared vision across a university and can be the context for supporting professors with specific technological skills and support to implement their own teaching, learning, and scholarship process.
