The e-Coach project will introduce a coaching method in distance education (e-coaching), based on the consortium's extensive experience in successfully building trust through the use of coaching in the educational process. This method enables to "activate" students (inclusive education) and personalizes the education process (each student receives "material" which is required,not a general lecture directed to "everybody"). Coaching is a method of shaping skills based on the art of asking questions that mobilize the questioned (coachee) to self-analyze, act and seek knowledge. The time of the pandemic in which we find ourselves is the time of limited contact between students and teachers and this time can be used to introduce a coaching methodology that
can make our students very "independent", increasing their creativity and commitment.
The project will deliver the following outputs:
O1. An innovative didactic methodology for distance education (E-Coach), which will create the basement to build trust between parties of the educational process.
O2. Integrated e-learning platform on the application of e-coaching methodology; it includes the activation program for teachers.
O3. Pilot examples of e-coaching courses i.e.12 recorded Calculus, Algebra, Programming and Entrepreneurship classes using the innovative e-coaching methodology dedicated to higher education institutions.
These outcomes may be relevant also for other fields of education, training and youth. Our direct target groups are academic teachers. The implemented methodology will have also a direct influence on students. It is planned that over 50 teachers and students will be involved in the project during the execution phase. At least 160 people from target groups will take part in the dissemination events.
