The University of Calgary is implementing a program that will provide coaching and mentoring for instructors who are integrating learning technologies in their courses. The coaches are supported in an integrated, multidisciplinary community of practice, with professional development and communication facilitated through personnel in the Educational Development Unit. The distributed and context-specific nature of the coaches embedded in each faculty allows for flexibility in supporting various platforms and pedagogies, while also providing central coordination and professional development of the coaches.

This program was designed after the "D2L Coaches" model that was implemented by several faculties during the campus migration to D2L, and the scope has been broadened to include exploration and integration of any relevant learning technologies in all faculties at the University of Calgary. I will share a high-level overview of the program, as well as examples of how the Coach model has transformed the integration of learning technologies across the University of Calgary.
