On this episode of Learning Out Loud, we discuss how supporting teachers to become more capable ultimately leads to more successful students.
First, we sit down with Brian Weishar, a consultant of CSC, to discuss his work with the Wikwemikong First Nations Board of Education. Working directly with the teachers as a coach-in-residence over the course of several months, Brian initiated a co-learning cycle of assessing student needs through co-planning, co-teaching, co-assessing, and co-reflecting. The cyclical process differs from traditional teacher training in that it allows further questions, follow-up, and collaborative practice.
Next, we share an interview with our CEO, Amy Coupal, and CSC’s international advisor, Dr. Avis Glaze. Avis is not only an educator, but a human rights advocate, and believes the classroom is a laboratory for building effective human relationships. In this interview, Amy and Avis discuss the importance of empathy and equity in education and how to support students for their most successful futures.
