Our next Teaching and Learning Conversation (TLC) is on Wednesday 11th July at 12:00 – 13:00 (60 minutes) with Emma Gillaspy, Digital teaching & learning manager, School of Health & Society, University of Salford.
This month’s TLC is titled ‘Developing the Congruent Educator’. This webinar will explore the potential for taking a coaching approach to learning and teaching development and how we can work holistically with individual’s strengths to ensure they are happy, satisfied and performing at their best.
is facing a period of sustained and unprecedented change. A recent
global study by Roland Persson from Jönköping University reported by
Times Higher Education (2017)
showed that stress in academia is on the rise due to increased workload
and a lack of support.
(2009) defines coaching as “unlocking people’s potential to maximize
their own performance”. Coaching has been shown to positively impact
such as reducing stress and improving wellbeing and resilience (Grover
& Furnham, 2016). Common outcomes from coaching include increased
self-efficacy, performance and satisfaction (Jarvis, 2008). Coaching is
becoming more widely used across the Higher Education
(HE) sector. This includes coaching support for senior management and
increasing provision for researchers (Medd, 2012). However there is very
little research into the efficacy of academic coaching for improving
learning and teaching practice.
I propose that coaching may be a positive developmental intervention that can improve confidence and competence in teaching. During this webinar, we will:
§ investigate the benefits and challenges of adopting a coaching approach
§ try out a range of coaching tools and techniques that encourage academic development
debate the feasibility of adopting a coaching approach for improving learning and teaching practice
