Specialist in Education (Ed.S.)


Educational Leadership


The presence of high quality instructional skills in classrooms is a primary goal for school systems. Too often this goal is addressed in a hit-and-miss way by administrators who either don't have the time or don't possess the skills to help teachers maintain or acquire quality teaching skills. Some research has been done in the area of peer coaching as a means to specifically target the area of improved teaching skills, but few studies have been documented to see actual results of this type of program.
