This study investigates the effects of eCoaching, delivered through online bug-in-ear technology, on co-teachers as they planned and carried out co-teaching.
Participants included three co-teaching dyads, each comprised of one general and one special educator.

The data revealed that eCoaching increased participants’ use of varied co-teaching models and student-specific accommodations, while co-teachers’ interviews and students’ time samples verified social validity.
Taken together, these findings lead to better understanding of the benefits and limitations of eCoaching with co-teachers.
