Dr. Devon Donohue-Bergeler co-presented “Coaching an Middle- und High-Schools in den USA: Ein Programm des Goethe-Instituts New York” at the GETVICO German Teacher Virtual Conference on Saturday, September 28, 2019.
In German, she discussed her experience coaching German teachers in pedagogical issues related to teaching German as a foreign language. The coaching program included 3 phases: 1) online consulting, usually about lesson planning or other pertinent issues; 2) in-person classroom observations and follow-up discussions; 3) continued support for pedagogical change and action research.
Both the coaching program and the virtual conference are free services supported by the Goethe Institute, which is funded by the German Federal Government.
Donohue-Bergeler is Senior Lecturer of German and coordinator of the German program at UTSA.
