Program Design, Development and Administration

Our decades of experience in program evaluation, design, development and administration can be leveraged to fit your institutional needs, as well as to provide training for your leadership and staff to maximize funding outcomes and impact.  We can work with your staff and designees from conceptualization to program structure design to align with your objectives, facilitate key collaborations,  and as a partner in execution and administration.

Through our sister company Lifestyle Learning, our Student Success Modules (SSM) can be licensed with training where applicable for use in your program, or provided as a package where we provide curriculum and instruction. The SSM is a series of interactive exercises that explore topics that are designed to enhance student life and academic survival skills. These interactive modules employ in-app activities and assignments, as well as  journaling, social media exercises, and engaging videos. The modules can be used independently in a self-directing fashion, as mechanisms for content delivery for later discussion on a flipped classroom type pedagogic design, or as tools for presentation of content by the instructor. Topics available within SSM include: Goal Setting, Time Management, Effective Communications, Digital and Financial Literacy, Ethics, Critical Thinking, Note Taking, Memory Skills and Metacognition-Learning how to Learn.

We also provide licensing and direct program design and administration for the integration of Career Exploration in a virtual or hybrid formats through Career Navideer ( a browsable interactive, data driven web-based platform, aligns user input regarding  six areas of lifestyle (location, housing, eating habits, transportation, leisure, family) to generate a Lifestyle Index that reflects the current cost and salary requirements. User priority choices are then made from Work Values (independence, recognition, working conditions, relationships, achievement and support); Education (baccalaureate, masters, doctoral, post-doctoral etc.); and over 40 Work Activities (decision making, data analysis, problem solving etc.). The Lifestyle Index information and user priority choices are then used to query 1,100 occupations spanning 50,000 job titles.  Users are then provided a browsable set of aligned occupations, with the ability to group by broad STEM or more concentrated areas (cybersecurity etc.).  Summary and detailed reports related to each occupation cover:  salaries (national and state), 10-year demand projections, underrepresentation based on gender and minority status, range of education levels of individuals currently in that occupation, work tasks and levels of importance, knowledge areas and relative depth for that specific occupation, demanded skills and abilities, work styles, work activities, survey data from individuals in each occupation regarding work routines and workplace demands, and much more. Users are also provided information on required certifications and post-secondary training programs as well as career specific financial management information. Additionally, users can browse at least 100 videos for each occupation and randomly selected job titles within each occupation (a day in the life of etc.), audio (podcasts), and presentations related to each occupation. Users can also generate tables that compare multiple occupations and job titles across several areas (education, demand projections, training, salaries, work values etc.). 

Career Navideer can be used as a tool for  independent career exploration, classroom, workshop or career services environments. The information in the Career Navideer platform supports  sessions related to career exploration and decision making, financial preparation, and career skills development. It also   serves as a basis for students to make informed decisions related to academic concentration, as well as informing individual career development plans, and career-based mentoring.   The accompanying administrative portal for institutions allows institutions administrators to track usage and determine things like common skills across the  student users within an institution to inform curriculum and other programming. Additional career development workshops will provide instruction in an array of areas including the pathways for effective communication, dressing for success, and public speaking. Students will develop CVs, cover letters, identify initial areas of research interests, and engage in mock interviews.

We provide levels of engagement from consultation in conceptualization to providing all aspects of program administration and execution.  Our products and services can be structured to address your program and institutional needs.
