Communities of Practice and One-to-One Coaching
- What is a Community of Practice?
The Community of Practice is a group of educators with similar roles, grouped by regional proximity. Each Community of Practice will start as a group with AVID facilitators and continue as a community during the school year. The school-year community is a continuation of professional learning, and the level of participation will be determined by the individual participants. During the school year, there will also be options for participants to choose additional topics to expand their learning.
- How will the Communities of Practice work during the school year?
The Communities of Practice will be available for participation during the school year with asynchronous engagement and will work with participants to schedule any short, synchronous sessions. Educators are not expected to need substitutes or to miss days of instruction in order to participate. There will also be opportunities to schedule one-to-one coaching support with AVID facilitators.
CoP Collaborative One-to-One Coaching
Community of Practice (CoP) Collaborative Coaching consists of 30-minute synchronous coaching sessions facilitated by CoP facilitators. The sessions are requested by DigitalXP and Discover participants during posted times and are not mandatory.
These coaching sessions are focused on implementation of content connected to CoP learning, AVID instructional practices, and AVID implementation. The sessions are conducted via video conference or phone. For more information, visit the Collaborative Coaching module in your Community of Practice course.
Extended Learning Pathway
An Extended Learning Pathway is an opportunity for Community of Practice members to choose a six-hour learning journey in the Fall and Winter.
This allows members to build on their knowledge of identified topics of interest (such as academic language development, culturally proficient teaching, digital citizenship, and STEM).
New learning can be applied in participants’ school sites and shared with their Community of Practice.
