Personalized Course Coaching at Scale: Bringing ECoach to Pitt


ECoach is a personalized coaching tool developed at the University of Michigan that allows tailored communication and interventions for students in large enrollment courses. ECoach allows professors to personalize feedback to students, supporting student success in the short term, as well as in the long-term by promoting meta-cognitive and self-regulatory skills. This proposal will support the adoption of ECoach at the University of Pittsburgh and include pilots in PSY, BIOSC, and CHEM courses. Based on years of use at UM, we expect improved grades and lower DFW rates for students who use ECoach.
