  • Collaborative Developmental Screenings for Early Childhood Collaborations Course

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Collaborative developmental screenings is a Community Systems Development (CSD) strategy where different stakeholders and sectors collaborate to coordinate and conduct screenings, so more children can be screened and more children will then receive the services they need. This course explores benefits of collaborative developmental screenings, implementation and implementation challenges of collaborative developmental screenings, and how to create a plan for collaborative developmental screenings.

    A developmental screening is a brief and simple process that takes a closer look at how a child is developing and can tell if the child is learning basic skills or if there are delays. Conducting screenings benefits children in that those with delays can receive the support and services they need in order to try to catch up in development to their peers and reach their full potential. Collaborative developmental screenings is a Community Systems Development (CSD) strategy where different stakeholders and sectors collaborate to coordinate and conduct screenings, so more children can be screened and more children will then receive the services they need. Early childhood community collaborations around the state may be interested in learning more about this strategy as they work to support families with young children in their community. 

    In this course, users will explore benefits of collaborative developmental screenings, implementation and implementation challenges of collaborative developmental screenings, and how to create a plan for collaborative developmental screenings. This course is complementary to the course on CSD and shared intake, another CSD strategy, and all courses can be accessed at any time. A certificate of completion will be generated for individuals who complete the course as well as a survey. We have partnered with The Center: Resources for Teaching and Learning to offer ISBE Professional Development Hours (PDH) and with INCCRRA to offer this as a Gateways approved training. 

  • Shared Intake for Early Childhood Collaborations Course

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Shared intake (also commonly known as coordinated intake) is a Community Systems Development (CSD) strategy that provides families with a single point of entry where their needs for support can be assessed and they can be referred to local services and programs that best fit the family’s needs. This course explores benefits of shared intake, implementation and implementation challenges of shared intake, and how to create a plan for shared intake.

    Shared intake (also commonly known as coordinated intake) is a Community Systems Development (CSD) strategy that provides families with a single point of entry where their needs for support can be assessed and they can be referred to local services and programs that best fit the family’s needs. Using shared intake can eliminate duplication of services, improve access to services, allow maximum usage of services, create a streamlined process for recruitment, and promote collaboration. Early childhood community collaborations around the state may be interested in learning more about this strategy as they work to support families with young children in their community. 

    In this course, users will explore benefits of shared intake, implementation and implementation challenges of shared intake, and how to create a plan for shared intake. This course is complementary to the course on CSD and collaborative developmental screenings, another CSD strategy, and all courses can be accessed at any time.

  • Community Systems Development for Early Childhood Collaborations Course

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Community Systems Development (CSD) is a process by which community stakeholders from different sectors work in collaboration to focus and align their work, develop shared processes to achieve common outcomes, and take collective responsibility for the young children in their community. These modules explore CSD in early childhood collaborations.

    Collaboration Systems Development (CSD) is a concept that comes up repeatedly when discussing the work of early childhood community collaborations, but is not always thoroughly understood. CSD is a process by which community stakeholders from different sectors work in collaboration to focus and align their work, develop shared processes to achieve common outcomes, and take collective responsibility for the young children in their community. Essentially, there is recognition that there is work to be done that cannot be accomplished by a single individual or organization, and that CSD supports the ability of collaborations to enhance outcomes for young children and families in their community through a systems approach. 

    These on-demand modules provide information, activities, and resources that will help collaborations understand CSD and how it applies to their work. Module 1 focuses on CSD and Module 2 focuses on early childhood collaborations. While this course is designed for the modules to be followed sequentially, they can be completed out of order. In addition, other courses have been developed around specific CSD strategies such as shared intake and collaborative developmental screenings that are complementary to this course. Modules can be accessed at any time. A certificate of completion will be generated for individuals who complete both modules as well as a survey. We have partnered with The Center: Resources for Teaching and Learning to offer ISBE Professional Development Hours (PDH) and with INCCRRA to offer this as a Gateways approved training. 

  • Early Childhood Collaboration Data Learning Course

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Data is crucial to the work of early childhood collaborations; many want to learn more about how to become more data-informed. These modules delve into how to focus your purpose, collect data, make meaning from the data, communicate findings to drive action, and build a data culture.

    One of the areas that collaborations request training and technical assistance in again and again is data. Collaborations know that data is important but may not know how to go about making data-informed decisions that can strengthen and deepen the impact of their work with children and families. These on-demand modules provide information, activities, and resources that will help collaborations do their work more effectively which will ultimately improve outcomes for children and families in Illinois.

    Module 1 provides an overview on the goals for the course and the data cycle. Module 2 helps collaborations assess community needs and narrow their focus on what data to collect, analyze, and communicate. Module 3 examines different data collection methods and how to maintain confidentiality and data security. Module 4 explores how to analyze data to extract meaning and draw data-informed conclusions that can influence and support decision-making. Module 5 is on communicating a data story in a way that conveys meaning and drives action. Module 6 completes the course by building understanding on why and how to create a data-informed culture.

    While the course is designed for the modules to be followed sequentially, if certain topics are more pressing or interesting to explore, they can be completed out of order. Modules can be accessed at any time. A certificate of completion will be generated for individuals who complete all six modules as well as a survey. We have partnered with The Center: Resources for Teaching and Learning to offer ISBE Professional Development Hours (PDH) and with INCCRRA to offer this as a Gateways approved training.
