Modifying RECOLLECT 

 

The RECOLLECT Checklists and Fidelity Measure were developed for use in building-based Recovery Colleges in England, and minor modifications are permissible for use in other settings. The structure, dimension names and scoring cannot be changed. Any modifications should not introduce new concepts, and should as far as possible simply translate the existing concept to the local setting. Example minor modifications include changing specific terms to local variants, e.g. ‘trainer’ to ‘facilitator, ‘prospectus’ to ‘syllabus’, ‘further education’ to ‘continuing education’ and ‘NHS’ to ‘health services’. Please describe any modifications when reporting findings.

Using RECOLLECT with online colleges

When used for an online college, references to ‘physical environment’ can be changed to ‘online environment’, and two dimensions need modification (with changes shown for Fidelity Measure, and equivalent changes needed for Checklists):

Dimension 5 (Social connectedness)

Definition: Both the culture and the online environment of the college provide students with opportunities to develop connections with others. The learning space is relaxed, e.g. all students are respected and able to contribute, access to a variety of communication tools such as chat function and whiteboards, time before and after class on the online platform is dedicated for socialising. Facilitators recognise and cater for students social needs, e.g. organising exercises and breaks for chatting, sharing experiences and developing friendships.

Rating 0: Students’ social experience is low on the Recovery College’s agenda when deciding on course structure and the online environment. There are no specific processes for students to get to know one another. The courses are focused on learning and do not include time or expectations for students to chat and get to know one another.

Rating 1: We ensure that the Recovery College is a welcoming environment for students. Trainers are encouraged to provide opportunities for online socialising during courses where possible, but this is not central to their role. A few of our online courses have opportunities to meet online or in person outside the classroom, but there are a number of technological, practical or financial barriers to this.

Rating 2: The Recovery College recognises the role that student integration and connectedness plays in learning and recovery. The college provides a range of online opportunities for socialising, e.g. chat rooms. Trainers are supported to integrate opportunities for students to form closer bonds with each other into the structure of courses.

Dimension 9 (Location)

Type 1: The Recovery College is bannered (e.g. with logos or named affiliation) as located within communities or neighbourhoods, not in NHS or social care services

Type 2: The Recovery College is bannered (e.g. with logos or named affiliation) as belonging to local NHS or social care services.

Please describe any modifications when reporting findings.
