Target Audience

Instructional coaches interested in networking with other instructional coaches Edmonton and the surrounding areas

About this learning opportunity

The Edmonton Regional Learning Consortium (ERLC) is hosting a ½ year Professional Learning Network from February 2017 to June 2017. Instructional coaches will meet monthly to engage in personal professional learning that includes professional dialogue, networking and reflection.

The goals of this project are to:

  • Engage in discussions on how the Essential Conditions for Instructional Coaching, which are based on the Alberta Education’s A Guide to Support Implementation: Essential Conditions are “lived” in each individual's context.
  • Explore research related to the instructional coaching role; connect research to your own practice; and reflect on implications for your work as leader in your school.


  • The series will begin with a half day orientation session in February, followed up with four half-day sessions.   
  • At each session, you will engage in professional learning opportunities to review current research; share artifacts, discuss/reflect on implications for your work as an instructional coach.

You should attend with the understanding that this will be a working group. You will need to come with your materials, and a laptop in order to maximize the opportunity for learning.

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
