Learning Forward and Tutor.com collaborate to form on-demand coaching service
Learning Forward, the organization that created the Standards for Professional Learning, and Tutor.com, the leader in one-to-one, on-demand learning solutions, are collaborating on a new, high-impact service to maximize the effectiveness of thousands of instructional coaches. Offered through the Learning Forward Center for Results, Coaches’ Connect will provide support to instructional coaches from experienced, master coaches online using Tutor.com’s real-time learning platform. The service will launch in September 2012.
“Instructional coaches are essential to improving educator effectiveness and student achievement,” said Stephanie Hirsh, executive director of Learning Forward. “Our collaboration with Tutor.com will bring immediate and powerful support to coaches responsible for guiding teachers in implementing effective practices in the classroom.”
“Professional learning is undergoing dramatic changes to the benefit of our schools, teachers and students,” said George Cigale, founder and CEO of Tutor.com. “We are pleased to collaborate with the recognized leader in the field to bring our model of on-demand support to important agents of change—instructional coaches.”
