Coaches as Change Agents Webinar with Michael Fullan

This webinar examines what effective coaches do and links this work to school and district improvement. The role of coaches as change agents in the school and district are exemplified with case examples. The key message is that coaches will be much more effective if they see themselves and are seen as part of a larger change effort to improve school systems.
