CWiC Guide to Courseware Adoption

High-quality digital courseware alone will not lead to improved student outcomes. To reap the benefits of courseware, and to avoid common mistakes and unnecessary costs with its use, institutional leaders should approach implementation holistically. This guide is intended to provide an overview of the different stages of courseware adoption, from determining readiness to scaling a courseware solution. While a methodical, planful approach to adoption is critical for successful experimentation, innovation and piloting, the guide also supports institutional leaders seeking to establish an iterative, continuous improvement approach to achieving scale and sustainability in courseware adoption. Recognizing that scale is achieved through a cycle of continuous improvement, the guide outlines key steps to be considered, identifies stakeholders to be engaged, and provides additional resources to be referenced in each stage.
