The Value of Self-tracking and the Added Value of Coaching in the Case of Improving Time Management
Proceedings of the10th European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (ECTEL 2015), 2015
We report two 6-week studies, each with 10 participants, on improving time management. In each study a different interventions was administered, in parallel to otherwise regular work: In the self-tracking setting, participants used only an activity logging tool to track their time use and a reflective practice, namely daily review of time use, to improve time management. In the coaching setting, participants did the same, but additionally received weekly bilateral coaching. In both settings, participants reported learning about time management. This is encouraging, as such self-directed learning is clearly cheaper than coaching. Only participants in the coaching setting however improved their self-assessment with respect to predefined time management best practices.
