Toolkit meeting presentation uwic

  1. 1. Work Based Learning Maturity Toolkit:<br />UWIC Pilot.<br />Andrew Haldane<br />Loretta Newman-Ford<br />
  2. 2. Why use the WBL Maturity Toolkit?<br /><ul><li> Test the Toolkit to establish whether it is fit-for purpose, robust and user-friendly before advertising it to the wider UWIC community
  3. 3. explore how the toolkit could help to formulate an institutional WBL strategy.
  4. 4. A way of assessing UWIC’s current state of play in terms of WBL and to inform future developments in this area.</li></li></ul><li>Area of focus<br />The toolkit was piloted at:<br /><ul><li>Institutional level
  5. 5. School level
  6. 6. Programme level </li></ul>Our own focus was also to consider:<br /><ul><li>how well the toolkit described WBL maturity (from the user perspective)
  7. 7. ways in which the toolkit could be used/customised
  8. 8. what actions could be taken to improve WBL at UWIC</li></li></ul><li>Methodology<br />Conduct face-to-face meetings with stakeholders using a semi-structured interview approach<br />Approach key stakeholders<br />Develop action plan to address areas of ‘immaturity’ and also for strategising WBL<br />Send Toolkit URL<br />
  9. 9. Customisation of the Toolkit<br /><ul><li> Informal customisation of the Toolkit
  10. 10. Re-phrasing statements as questions to prompt discussion and reflection around criteria</li></li></ul><li>Outcomes<br />Pilot findings:<br /><ul><li> WBL at UWIC is currently fragmented
  11. 11. We need to formalise WBL activities
  12. 12. A single WBL policy with high level objectives, but with enough scope for localised planning and implementation, is needed.
  13. 13. Staff need to feel ownership
  14. 14. The Toolkit was found to be unsuitable for use with large groups of stakeholders
  15. 15. There was consensus that the toolkit was an accurate, comprehensive representation of WBL maturity</li></ul>Resulting actions:<br /><ul><li> Development of an institutional strategy
  16. 16. Work with Schools to create localised plans and activities, structured around the strategy
  17. 17. Generate procedures for WBL to inform staff about how to develop and deliver high-quality WBL </li></li></ul><li>Lessons learnt and future plans<br /><ul><li> Explore ways of making the Toolkit more usable by groups of stakeholders
  18. 18. Compare a well-established WBL programme with newly validated programme and facilitate support and collaboration between teams
  19. 19. Use the Toolkit , a document which clearly and comprehensively illustrates WBL readiness, to inform the development of a UWIC strategy
  20. 20. Establish the process for strategy development </li></ul>and take steps to achieve this<br /><ul><li> The Toolkit could be more user-friendly
  21. 21. The Toolkit could facilitate the evaluation and </li></ul>action planning processes more effectively<br /><ul><li> The Toolkit would be more useful in an online form</li></li></ul><li>Suggested updates for the Toolkit<br />Based on the UWIC pilots, it is recommended that the following updates be made to the WBL Maturity Toolkit:<br /> Re-work the Toolkit into an online format<br />Categorise statements into ‘core’ and ‘supplementary’. <br />Present maturity indicators as questions rather than statements<br /> Use a 3-point traffic light system to illustrate the level of ‘maturity’<br />Introduce spaces for users to record their responses, reflections, strengths or concerns in relation to criteria, or perhaps a SWOT analysis<br />Create an action plan section where stakeholders can begin to develop ideas for development, etc.<br />Reduce the amount of jargon used. This was found to be off-putting to users<br />
