For this course we are looking for Master students who can fulfill a role as (technology) coach. You will coach several teams of Business Administration students from Rotterdam. As a coach you need to supervise the team process and make the link between the Business knowledge from the RSM students and your Technology insights.

In the course “Technology Management” Bachelor students from the Rotterdam School of Management (Erasmus University) need to find out how a new technology can be used best in an organization. Because the RSM students generally lack deep technological knowledge, they need assistance to think strategically about the technology. Because of this need, a unique cooperation has developed between the Rotterdam School of Management and the TU Delft.


Course description

To prepare you for the coaching, we offer you three to four trainings. The trainings are offered by the teaching staff and an educational consultant. The later will customize the training to your needs. You will learn a lot about coaching and you will immediately bring it into practice with an actor. 

After the training you will coach a maximum of 10 teams consisting of 6 students. You will work together with a coach partner, a senior student from the RSM. Together you will guide your students during at least four scheduled meetings. You will help them to grasp technology and learn how to evaluate technology. You will give them feedback on their work and instructions on how to do better with the next assignment. Your main goal is to help them reaching their learning goals on the for them highest level possible.   

Each coach duo is linked to a high tech company. Last year we have worked companies as OCE, Philips and ASML.

During this course we will evaluate your progress in coaching. This will be done in the four ways as described on the right. 

  • You will reflect on your own skills by making 3 assignments
  • You will have evaluation talks with the teaching staff
  • You will be assessed by your coach partner
  • You will be evaluated by the students

At the end of the course, students are able to:

  • Motivate students to get the most out of themselves and team members
  • Evaluate team performance and judge individual participation
  • Use team mediation to solve team issues
  • Give constructive feedback
  • Understand the impact of technology on an organization and its environment
  • Guide students through their course to ensure depth
