The COACHED Online Tool to Support Teacher Candidates’ Implementation of State Standards

COACHED is an online system used to provide coaching and actionable feedback to teachers. With many automated and customizable features, the COACHED tool can be used to conduct observations of teacher candidates and encourage candidates to complete self-observations. COACHED contains a wide variety of instructional categories and evidence-based practices for which feedback can be given to teachers and candidates to help promote high-quality instruction during lessons related to content area standards. In this second AACTE Lunch & Learn featuring COACHED, faculty and staff from the University of Virginia will dive deeper into the online system by demonstrating how COACHED can be used to support teacher preparation.
