[On-Demand Webinar] An Inside Look: How Georgia Created an Efficient and Effective Statewide Coaching and PD Program for Early Childhood Educators



Professional learning and coaching are linked to positive child learning outcomes and increased educator engagement and satisfaction. However, professional learning and coaching that are individualized to meet the needs of all early childhood educators across an entire state is no small undertaking. 

Watch this on-demand webinar to hear from Dr. Christi Moore, Director of Professional Learning at the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL), how DECAL has built, expanded, and sustained professional learning programming across the state using the online learning platform (OLP) TORSH Talent.

During the 45-minute webinar you’ll learn tips for how to:

  • Utilize synchronous and asynchronous coaching to provide educators with targeted feedback on practice and make learning digestible for busy schedules
  • Use standardized rubrics and frameworks so 1:1 coaching is aligned to evidence-based practices and providers stay on track with portfolio completion
  • Create the space for self-reflection so that both educators and coaches can easily revisit and build upon their learnings
  • Leverage data, insights, and reporting in all facets of your professional strategy to support informed decision-making 

Take advantage of this opportunity to see how one enterprise-level program provided more coaching to educators with greater efficiency and, as a result, cultivated high-quality educators who improve developmental outcomes for the families and children they serve.
