Coaching in Adult Ed with Part-time Teachers

I'm a state-level Adult Ed professional development coordinator and presenter in my state (among other things, hahaha). As a trained instructional coach in the K-12 system, I am interested in implementing a coaching model in our state, but there is a lot of skepticism about the feasibility of utilizing instructional coaches in a setting with mostly part-time teachers. I'm looking for success stories, if there are any, preferably at a state or regional level, of coaching implementation.  

Thanks in advance for all your thoughts!

This advanced professional development opportunity looks at improving the health literacy skills of health professionals and consumers at every level. Peer learning is a core component of the Institute’s educational approach. Participants work on an educational project of their choice and receive feedback from instructors highly regarded for their health literacy curriculum development work in medical education and adult literacy, and from each other.
