Empowered by Agency: Coaching for Education

With Pablo Molina Byers

Date of talk: April 23, 2024

About The Talk: For years, we've observed how a 'traditional' education system doesn't do the best job at preparing learners for the challenges of today's society, frustrating, depleting and failing teachers and learning institutions. So, what can we do as professionals to empower education? Many things, one of which is encouraging and fostering 'agency'—the ability to choose and act. Exercising 'agency' can set learners up for success, ensuring fulfillment and motivation for teachers and creating inspirational and transcendental learning institutions.  Whether you are a teacher, a teacher trainer, or responsible for an educational institution, by applying a few coaching principles, you can achieve this and more. You can truly open doors for everybody to be agents of their own learning journey. This talk takes the concept of 'agency' from coaching, so, it'll explore some of its principles so that you can take away example techniques and procedures to inspire, transcend, enjoy!
