    Research AbstractThis study aims to contribute towards the development of a team-coaching model for criticality to be used in HE. It will not only support an additional mode of delivery in the undergraduate classroom, but it will also create a learning environment that is dialogic and participatory to foster student criticality and creativity in problem-solving. The aim of the proposed research, therefore, is to develop a coaching model for criticality with small teams of business undergraduate students. The research will take place in Athens, Greece, at Deree-The American College of Greece. The reason that Deree-The American College of Greece was chosen is because it is NEASC accredited (US) and Open University (UK) validated, so it combines both American and British higher educational standards. Thus, the findings should have a wide relevance in Higher Education.
