In Advisor Initiated, Advisor Guided scenarios, the Advisor initiates the project module and guides the learning journey.

When to use this scenario?

Great to implement when advisors want to host a seminar or develop a module framework to inspire other projects, or when advisors need to frame or introduce other modules and can serve as seminars, curriculum maps, or advisory frameworks.

Example: Scholarship Application Process, 2 weeks

Initiation:

1. Advisor starts from a template containing the steps for a scholarship application.

2. Advisor assigns this copy of the process to the learner.

3. Learner reviews the module and examines the steps.

Journey:

4. Learner submits evidence to each step of the process.

5. Advisor views the progress and provides feedback to the learner.

6. Learner completes tasks and moves them to the Complete column of the Task Board.

Finalization:

7. Learner adds reflections to the module as a self-assessment.

8. Advisor reviews the evidence and approves the work.

9. Learner submits the completed scholarship application to the funder.

Workflow Explained

Looking at learning through various scenarios can inspire and guide better practice.

In this example scenario, we showcase a Scholarship Application process that takes two weeks.

This scenario focuses on the touchpoints within Headrush, and does not describe the Advisor’s guiding activities outside of Headrush.

JAG National, a job-placement network that helps youth nationwide, uses Headrush to support student applications for scholarships.

This scenario shows how the Learner completes a clearly defined, time-sensitive process with support from the Advisor along the way.

It starts when the advisor suggests the student apply for the Ken Smith scholarship. The Advisor makes a personalized copy of the scholarship application module, invites the Learner to participate, sets a timeline and scaffolds activities for the learner.

The Learner then begins the learning journey. According to the schedule, they submit as Evidence the various forms and essays required by the scholarship application process. The Advisor reviews this activity 1-2 times a week and provides immediate feedback.

Once all tasks are complete, the Advisor and Learner together review the module, and the Advisor pre-approves the application. The learner then sends the application off to the funder, and uses the Calendar to track the decision deadline. At this point, the Advisor and Learner might share a reflection on the JAG-specific competencies they developed through the application process.

Example: 10th Grade Humanities Seminar, 8 weeks

Initiation:

1. Advisor starts from a template from the school's Warehouse.
2. Advisor aligns competencies given their current and next focus areas in learner development.
3. Advisor schedules activities for the week and assigns learners.

Journey:

4. Learners review the module and task board.
5. Learners complete tasks.
6. Learners submit evidence of their work into tasks starting from templates, creating documents from scratch, and participating in discussions.
7. Advisor reviews activity on a daily basis, tracking learners through the dashboard.

Finalization:

8. Advisor finalizes module.
9. Learners each share a personal reflection of the learning experience.
10. Advisor assesses competencies for each learner.
11. Advisor assigns credits to each learner.

Workflow Explained

Looking at learning through various scenarios can inspire and guide better practice.

In this example scenario, we showcase a 10th Grade Humanities Seminar that takes eight week.

This scenario focuses on the touchpoints within Headrush, and does not describe the Advisor’s guiding activities outside of Headrush.

It starts when the Advisor copies the module from the Warehouse and assigns it to the Learners in their group. The Learners then see the new module on their Dashboards, along with the schedule of activities for the week. They review the module, and some start to complete Tasks and submit evidence, make discussions, or copy specific evidence starting points from a template.

The advisor reviews the activity daily, and makes comments directly from the feed of activity. The Advisor assesses some of the evidence and tasks against targets.

Finally at the end of the week, the Advisor asks the Learners to share a personal reflection on their learning, and completes the overall assessment of competencies. The Advisor also assigns credits to the Learners.
