Information for School Administrators
The new coaching program expands Goethe-Institut's already existing portfolio for American teachers of German that includes the following opportunities in face-to-face and online formats: course series Deutsch Lehren Lernen, online language courses for teachers, summer schools for teachers in the U.S. and Germany, face-to-face professional development courses, and the online conference GETVICO.
For the new Goethe-Institute full immersion coaching program, our carefully selected and trained coaches will join your teachers without them having to step out of their familiar school environment. Coaches cover a broad range of topics from curriculum design to teaching techniques.
Our coaches are trained in Germany and the U.S., particularly in the area of intercultural communication; thus, they are intimately acquainted with the educational systems in both countries. As individual or group counselors, they accompany your faculty on-site and online and assist you in fostering a better teaching community.
