An interpretive coach is someone that can provide valuable feedback on the site-based activities in the courses. There are two types of interpretive coaches: informal and registered.
**Informal coaches **use the scoring criteria provided in the activities and the coach’s manual located in the resources section of the course to provide feedback on the activities. They may or may not have received training in how to be a coach. Informal coaches receive the activities and send feedback via email or on a printed copy of the activity. No transcript of the coaching is created. A basic certificate of completion is awarded to those working with an informal coach, upon passing the final assessment for the course. (This certificate may also be obtained through completion of the course by self-study, without the services of a coach.)
Registered coaches have taken on online course in the basic principles of coaching and passed the assessment. They have also passed the assessment in the online course they are coaching. In addition, the first time they coach, they work with a coaching mentor to enhance their coaching abilities. Registered coaches use the scoring criteria and the coach’s manual located in the resources section of the course to provide feedback on the activities. Interpreters enrolled in a course with a registered coach submit their activities in the online learning environment. Then, registered coaches receive these activities and provide feedback through the same system. This creates a transcript of the coaching. An advanced certificate of completion is awarded upon successful completion of the course activities with a registered coach.
