Implementing Holistic Programming Learning Objectives: Participants will: 1.Will be introduced to the concept and challenges of bundled and integrated (B&I) services and prepare a basic B&I plan. 2.Learn the process of creating outcome scales and how they measure incremental change. 3.Learn how to construct and use a Outcome Matrix 4.Will develop basic resources and plans to implement B&I concept programs upon completion of this presentation
Bundled and Integrated Services Early evidence indicates that clients who receive bundled services are three to four times more likely to achieve a major economic outcome(such as staying employed, earning a certification or associates degree or buying a car) than clients receiving only one type of service. How many programs nationally in Adult Education focus ONLY on educational outcomes?
Provision of Service Model Most programs offer more than one service but they do so in a less effective way. Programs must both bundle and integrate services to increase outcomes. Bundled: The concept of offering multiple services to increase large scope outcomes in a single program. Integrated: Services are not isolated interventions but reconfigured within a holistic curricula to reduce student life cycle while maximizing impact.
Planning Bundled Services Programs Delivering integrated and bundled services requires well planned program design, the hiring and training of staff with strong skills and backgrounds, and thoughtful use of technology and data collection. DISCUSSION: In small groups of 3-5, take 10 minutes and list current program challenges in moving to an integrated and bundled program concept.
OUTCOME SCALES An Outcome Scale is a continuum that describes different states or conditions of status. An excellent example of a simple outcome scale is the gas gauge. Full being the most desirable and E being least desirable.
OUTCOME SCALE PRACTICE Create an outcome scale for a ABE or ASE program. (5 minutes) Now create an outcome scale for an Integrated and bundled service program offering ABE/ASE and a longitudinal outcome of post-secondary education or workforce.
OUTCOME MATRICES A more complex outcome scale is the outcome Matrix. Outcome matrices are necessary in order to create strong B&I programming accountability and improvement. An example will be handed out. In groups look at the example. Think of the services you wish to offer in B&I program. Take 15 minutes to begin creating your own matrix.
NEXT STEPS Create Logic Model based on ideal program outcomes and services needed to reach these short, intermediate and long term outcomes (Scales and Matrices) Locate willing partners and funding sources Develop an MOU to guide collaborations Implement/Revise program, collect data and evaluate. Repeat.

CONCLUSION Creating integrated and bundled service programs takes 1.Committed and strong partnerships 2.Strong planning including delineation of program responsibility (including funding and costs), creation of holistic curricula, onsite resources and navigators, and data collection and evaluation.
