Our Core Services
We surface opportunities–both live and digital–for memorable learning experiences, create strategic plans that deliver on that promise, provide ready-to-use educational materials, and give your staff the means to do more. Wondrus knows that no two clients are alike in their needs, budget or goals. We work with each client to determine the right blend of services that align with their objectives and calibrate to an organization's size and capacity. The first step is a conversation. Our services include:
We dig deep into your existing educational resources and experiences, planned new exhibits, and collections to assess the best opportunities for reaching your audience. Much like an audit, our opportunities assessment is a systematic review that provides a holistic perspective on where your educational resources or approach stands and includes recommendations to move you closer to your north star. We also look to your peers across the field, performing market assessments and unearthing the unique positioning that sets you apart. Our reports create the foundation for a forward-looking digital learning content strategy that centers equity and scale. Opportunities assessments always reflect your focus and questions and can also inform mission-critical work such as mobilizing donors and fundraising campaigns and new staff training. Tuned to your needs and budget, opportunities assessments are very often the first step in our work together, providing the background and perspective needed to inform a strategy roadmap.
Whether you already have a vision for achieving scale with your learners or are still determining the details, Wondrus can help you develop a targeted strategy that backward maps from the end goal to wherever you are today- creating a practical roadmap that helps you and your team get from Point A to Point B. Along the way, we build in opportunities to refine what’s working, identify pain points and recalibrate towards improved outcomes, and build trust and manage change- both internally and externally.
Evaluation & Vetting
To ensure your investment in educational resources has the desired impact, you must seek dispassionate user feedback. The Wondrus Educators Council connects our clients with objective representatives of their target audience. The Council is an always growing network of over 200 educators at-the-ready to participate in focus groups, user interviews, surveys—and even pilot prototypes in their classrooms. The Educators Council facilitates your ability to get input from regular teachers representing diverse communities and experiences (tenure in the classroom, socio-economic levels, ethnicity and race, grade-levels, subject areas, etc.)- not those who are already your institutional champions and power users. Wondrus uses this group to pressure test learning resources and then synthesizes the feedback into actionable takeaways and next steps.
We empower your staff to create more effective modes of teaching, whether reaching K-12 classrooms or better informing adult constituents. Part of capacity building is the elimination of repetitive tasks and overly involved onboarding; our coaching models apply a gradual release strategy that emphasizes learning new skills—including the design and execution of instructional materials—that can be applied to future projects, not simply mastery of a single presentation or plan.
We work with your staff to create high-impact, defensible instructional materials and learning experiences, from prototyping to the finished product, including the development of quality indicators for continuous improvement. From full project management and delivery of large-scale materials development initiatives to a purely consultative role, our contribution reflects your need.
