WIDS is wonderful!

. . . but WIDS is not everything for everyone!


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

WIDS is wonderful!

WIDS does offer something for everyone and everything for some.


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Hi,

I’ve brought you WIDS, and I’m here to help you!


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Planned implementation and leadership are key to helping each member of your college community play a role that fits her/his needs, level of interest, and abilities.


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

What is WIDS?

WIDS is an enhanced ISD (Instructional Systems Design) model, process, and software tool built on proven research and best learning-centered practice.

WIDS – tools for designing learning that works:

  • in the classroom

  • online

  • on-the-job

  • in the learning lab

  • in the field


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

WIDS Software tools are inspired and used by frontline teachers, trainers, and designers to:

  • Analyze performance requirements

  • Design programs

  • Establish learning outcomes

  • Document standards

  • Build assessments

  • Plan learning

Focus on Assessment


What do they need to be able to achieve

3 of 4 are assessment questions

WHO

WHAT

WHEN

HOW

  • Who are the learners?

  • How will I know when they’ve achieved it?

What do they need to be able to achieve?

  • How will they get there?


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Use WIDS to enhance assessment.

Use WIDS DACUM Module to:

  • Chart duties/tasks required for high performance

  • Verify duties/tasks


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Use WIDS to enhance assessment.

Use WIDS Program Module to:

  • Identify related DACUMS

  • Designate External Standards

  • Establish Exit Learning Outcomes

    • Core Abilities

    • General Education Outcomes (degree/program level)

    • Program Outcomes (discipline specific)

  • Link DACUM, External Exit Learning Outcomes to Courses


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Use WIDS to enhance assessment.

Use WIDS Learning Design Module to:

  • Develop competencies

  • Designate performance standards

  • Link Exit Learning Outcomes, External Standards, Duties/Tasks to Competencies

  • Develop performance assessment tasks

    • Scenarios

    • Scoring Guides/Rubrics


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Maximize the potential of WIDS to enhance assessment:

  • Create/maintain program outcome summaries for all new and existing programs.

  • Develop/maintain course outcome summaries for all courses.

  • Design performance assessment tasks for course level and beyond the course assessments.


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Maximize the potential of WIDS to enhance assessment:

  • Use WIDS Analyzer to document how outcomes are linked with programs and courses.

  • Coordinate WIDS with an Assessment Management System.

  • Present WIDS documentation as a central feature in accreditation (NCA-HLC and professional/trade association.


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

WIDS Analyzer allows you to look at how outcomes are addressed within programs and across courses.

Focus on Learning


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Use WIDS to enhance learning.

Use WIDS Learning Design Module to:

  • Build Syllabi that include:

    • Core Abilities

    • Competencies

    • Guidelines for successful learning

    • Course information

    • Schedule


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Use WIDS to enhance learning.

Use WIDS Learning Design Module to:

  • Build Learning Plans that tell learners:

    • WHY this is important

    • WHAT they will learn to do

    • HOW they will learn

    • How they will show WHEN they have learned


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Use WIDS to enhance learning.

Use WIDS Learning Design Module to:

  • Design Learning Activities that:

    • Support the learning cycle

    • Incorporate multiple intelligences or learning styles

    • Incorporate CATs (classroom assessment techniques)


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Use WIDS to enhance learning.

Use WIDS Learning Design Module to:

  • Clarify Assessment Activities.

  • Inventory and spec out supporting learning materials/objects.


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Use WIDS to enhance teaching.

Use WIDS Learning Design Module to:

  • Layout Teaching Plans that:

    • Describe teaching activities that support learning activities.

    • List resources and supplies.

    • Predict a learning timeframe.

    • Give instructions for supporting online learning.


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Maximize the potential of WIDS to enhance learning and teaching

  • Distribute learning plans to learners at the beginning of the learning experience or at the learning point.

  • Make learning plans central to your online framework for learning.

  • Develop teaching plans that guide the teaching process.


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Maximize the potential of WIDS to enhance learning and teaching

  • Establish learning plans as unique to individual teachers.

  • Encourage teachers to collaborate on and share learning plans.

  • Provide learning plans for adjunct faculty (with the understanding that they may adopt, adapt, or redevelop them).

  • Use WIDS Analyzer as a course design review and coaching tool.


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

WIDS Analyzer helps you analyze the completeness and quality of courses.


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Maximize the over-all potential of WIDS:

  • Make the WIDS model and process part of the way you do business.

  • Involve many – at a level that fits their needs.

  • Make current WIDS Software available to all learning leaders (faculty and administrative).

  • Establish a centralized file management system and protocol for WIDS files and documents.


Connecting learning teaching and assessment

Maximize the over-all potential of WIDS:

  • Create a dissemination system that gives all learning leaders (faculty and administrative) access to WIDS files and documents. [ex. CurriculumBank]

  • Provide robust internal WIDS professional development opportunities.

  • Ensure that WIDS coaches and trainers are current.
