Evidence Based Observations and Coaching


Good teachers engage in self-reflection and seek student feedback; great teachers look to peers for mentoring, advice and feedback to critically reflect on and extend their teaching practice to become student-centred, flexible, informed and innovative teachers.

Independent Schools Victoria implemented the use of Evidence Based Observations (EBO) as the basis for coaching in an extended professional learning approach to improve and sustain students' literacy and numeracy outcomes. School-based coaches gather data about the specific behaviours of teacher and student engagement, and set goals collaboratively with the teacher to navigate pathways to developing more culturally inclusive, learner-centred classrooms.
