Cognitive Coaching Foundations Seminar. Cognitive Coaching Foundations Seminar is an eight-day training for administrators, coaches, and teacher leaders who would like to support those they work with in being more resourceful and self-directed. Cognitive Coaching also serves as a nucleus for professional communities that honor autonomy, encourage interdependence, and strive for high achievement! Teachers make an infinite number of decisions each day. In fact, the act of teaching is the result of the decisions a teacher makes after the complex cognitive processing of available information from learners. Superior teachers are intentional about the teaching acts they choose and reflect upon the impact of their choices, all of which are cognitive processes. If teaching is decision-making, then the coaching of teaching is a process of coaching teachers' decision making processes - thus Cognitive Coaching. Summer/Spring: July 17-18; August 21-22, 2024; May 14-15; June 11-12, 2025; Fall/S
