3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Marketing Research That Won't Break the Bank, Alan Andreasen shows readers how to get the information they need to make smart, strategic decisions without spending a lot of money. The tools and techniques presented will help managers gain an in-depth understanding of their target market, competitors, and environment without stretching the organization's budget." "Marketing Research That Won't Break the Bank shows that research need not be expensive, overly complex, or involve complicated statistics to be extremely helpful to managers in a wide range of organizations. Andreasen demystifies marketing research in an accessible, readable, and easy-to-use way, sweeping away the misconceptions that keep managers from doing marketing research and motivating them to get started. He offers a basic approach that assures that any research done is actually needed and useful to the manager and describes a variety of low-cost research techniques that can provide management with crucial market insights and improve decision making. Andreasen offers insights on how to use the Web, conduct low-cost surveys and focus groups, make astute observations of customers and competitors, use simple experiments to test tactics and strategies, create internal records that yield maximum creative insight, and more."--BOOK JACKET

Evaluation of the Appalachian Regional Commission Oak Ridge National Laboratory Summer Institute for Math/Science/Technology by Linda S Simkin( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes some of the key immediate and long-term outcomes achieved by the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC)-Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Summer Institute for Math/Science/Technology for student and teacher participants. This two-week summer program provides high school students and teachers from the Appalachian region the opportunity to work with mentor scientists from ORNL on inquiry-based, applied projects in science, math, and computer technology. The goals of the Summer Institute, in operation since 1990, are to (1) encourage more high school students to continue their studies beyond high school, (2) encourage more students to pursue careers in the projected shortage areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and (3) raise the level of math, science, and technology instruction in high schools throughout the region to facilitate the first two goals. To assess the results of its more than $2 million investment in the Summer Institute since its inception 16 years ago in 1990, ARC funded this evaluation to determine the extent to which these goals have been achieved. The evaluation sought to measure short-and longer-term outcomes aligned with the Summer Institute's goals for students and teachers. ARC asked AED evaluators to make recommendations for establishing an ongoing evaluation capability for the ARC-ORNL Summer Institute. These recommendations can be found in the appendix to this report. (Contains 26 tables and 1 figure.)
Never too old to learn : a report submitted to the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation ... New York by Academy for Educational Development( Book )

5 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is a result of a study of available opportunities offered by post secondary institutions to help older persons remain active and involved in their communities. Through interviews of relevant literature, detailed questionnaires sent to over 400 institutions, visits to over 33 institutions, and interviews with personnel, older students, educational groups, and social agencies, the survey evaluated the present programs and revealed the lack of programs to fulfill the needs of older adults. Chapter 1 provides national demographic data with charts on the characteristics of older persons and discusses their adjustment, identity, participation, and fulfillment needs. A roster of the principal characteristics of ongoing programs and brief descriptions of each are presented in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 recommends communication and involvement as two guidelines for planning programs and includes specific considerations (identifying the market, deciding on course content, maximizing accessibility, choosing schedules, opting for various instructional methods, providing supplementary services and financing). Chapter 4 examines the benefits of these programs and recommends indepth evaluations of programs, selected new demonstration projects for "new careers" and "rehabilitation", and dissemination of information and ideas. An evaluation checklist, the academy's board of directors, the surveyed and visited institutions, and an annotated bibliography are appended. (Author/JB)
How to plan a college program for older people by John J Scanlon( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recommendations are offered in this manual for planning, organizing, and financing academic programs for older people, based on the experience of institutions already conducting programs for older students, on current thinking in gerontology, and on knowledge and experience of staff and consultants of the Academy for Educational Development. Three major questions are addressed: (1) Why should a college or university be interested in establishing special programs for older people? (2) What kinds of couses are older people interested in taking, and what kinds of supplemental services do they need? (3) What are the steps that must be taken in planning, operating, and financing such a program? Six program models are described: The Institute for Retired Professionals at the New School for Social Research; Fordham University's College at Sixty; The College of Older Americans at Mercyhurst; Project Elderly at Miami-Dade Community College; Opportunities for Older Adults at Hawkeye Institute of Technology; and Elderhostel at several New England institutions. Suggestions for financing the programs are discussed, and working tools are described, such as marketing instruments, evaluation instruments, financial reports, and newsletters. Appended are lists of colleges offering programs, courses being offered, and state agencies on aging. (Lbh)
Never too old to teach by Judith Murphy( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes a wide spectrum of programs that are successfully using older people in education roles. A survey has indicated that older educators are successful, not only as evaluated by the sponsors of educational programs, but also in the eyes of their students. The possibilities are not limited to formal schooling but include service to public libraries, museums, hospitals, government extension services, and senior centers. It is pointed out that older people can be invaluable in helping to alleviate the problem of illiteracy. One of the chapters provides a set of general guidelines for the development of programs that can make use of the resources older people have to offer which may serve the learning needs of individuals and society at large.

Mergers in higher education : an analysis of ten case studies by John D Millett( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten college and university mergers are discussed to present information about the reasons for such mergers, the process employed to achieve them, and their consequences. The study provides practical information about several mergers that have taken place and suggests guidelines for those who wish to consider merger. A variety of factors contributing to a merger decision are discussed including geographical proximity, complementary programs, a history of cooperative relationships, the drive to coeducation, the desire to strengthen the quality of higher educational service, and complexities of higher education financing. The processes involved in merger are outlined as are the various consequences. Closing as an alternative to merger is presented and five case studies reveal a variety of factors contributing to that decision. From the cases studied a number of generalizations and guidelines for mergers are presented along with a checklist for merger situations. (Jmf)

How to integrate water, sanitation, and hygiene into HIV programmes by Renuka Bery( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) practices are essential for maintaining health, yet most countries and donors have not included WASH in national policies and programmes for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The World Health Organization (WHO) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) have begun to explore how to integrate WASH into HIV programming. In particular, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention developed and studied approaches to providing safe drinking water for people living with HIV. Since 2006, WHO and USAID have supported pioneering applications that have integrated WASH into HIV programmes in three countries--Ethiopia, Malawi and Uganda. In addition, USAID has promoted the integration of WASH into different United States Government HIV programmes through various working groups of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Response. Many different donors, organizations and programmes are now considering WASH when developing HIV policies and programmes, and are seeking more guidance on how to integrate WASH practices into their programmes. This practical document is a response to such requests." - p. ix
