In February, Adam Geller, founder and CEO of Edthena, an online video coaching platform for classroom observation, sat down with author/researcher Jim Knight. They talked about Knight’s new book Better Conversations: Coaching Ourselves and Each Other to Be More Credible, Caring, and Connected and how video supports the instructional coaching process. 

Knight has spent nearly 20 years studying how teachers get better at teaching. He is a research associate at the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning and the president of the Instructional Coaching Group. 

Knight talked about courage it takes for teachers to look at a recording that may threaten the perception they have of their skills. “But the thing is, most people want to be good at what they do,” he said. “And to be good at what you do, you have to get a clear picture of where you are.”
