Development management : theory and practice by Justice Nyigmah Bawole( )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Présentation de l'éditeur : "Despite significant financial investments, the rate of development and pace of poverty reduction in developing and transitional countries has not always matched expectations. Development management typically involves complex interactions between governmental and non-governmental organisations, donors and members of the public, and can be difficult to navigate. This volume brings together theoretical and empirical underpinnings of development management, and to consider the prospects and challenges associated with it in the context of both developing and transitional countries. Refering to dominant norms and values in public and developmental organisations, development management is tied up with the attitudes and perceptions of various stakeholders including : government officials, public sector managers, aid workers, donors and members of the public. Attempting to make sense of complex interactions between these actors is highly problematic and calls for new approaches, models and insights. Based on cutting-edge research, the chapters challenge much of the previous discourse on the subject and evaluate the challenges and opportunities that it presents. Development management offers academics, researchers and practitioners of public administration, business and management, international development and political science a comprehensive and state-of-the-art review of current research on development management in the context of developing and transitional countries."
Can microfinance alleviate poverty? : a mixed-methods study in rural Pakistan by Asad Kamran Ghalib( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I embarked on a doctoral study in 2006 to assess two things: first, which categories of the poor are being served by microfinance institutions: are they the very poor, middle poor, or less poor ones? Second, whether household access to microfinance reduces poverty, and if so, to what extent and across which dimensions of well-being. The study was based on direct observations and primary data gathered from semi-structured interviews of 1,132 households across 11 districts in the rural areas of the province of Punjab in Pakistan. Methodologically, the research employed a quasi-experimental research design which employed data collected by interviewing both borrower (treatment) and non-borrower (control) households. Sample selection biases were controlled by matching propensity scores.This case discusses the limitations of using either qualitative or quantitative data alone to interpret survey responses and observations from the field. It explains how and why the mixed-methods approach offers a solution to this predicament. The case study develops further to provide a detailed account of how the mixed-methods approach was used to collect, analyze, and interpret qualitative and quantitative data. Within mixed methods, the case goes on to explain the triangulation approach to analyzing data. It also discusses, among other aspects, the significance of pilot testing a survey instrument prior to launching a full-scale survey
Research-informed teaching : a mixed-methods approach to assessing perception and practice within a higher education setting by Curtis E Ziniel( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research-informed teaching is becoming increasingly popular and "fashionable" these days, given the rise of a number of pedagogical methods and techniques within the higher education sector. An exploratory sequential mixed-methods design was used to capture academics' feedback and assess the effectiveness and value of research-informed teaching for both students and teachers at a new mid-sized English university. The first phase comprised detailed face-to-face interviews of academic staff across all faculties at the university. The qualitative data thus gathered were analyzed and used to draw up a set of questions for designing and imparting a questionnaire-based semi-structured survey. The survey was administered online across the university and responses were analyzed. Finally, inferences were drawn by analyzing and mixing data from both phases. Study findings revealed how lecturers implemented research-informed teaching into their own teaching provision and how it was highly idiosyncratic—determined by their individual teaching subjects, their own teaching styles, and their own independent definitions of research-informed teaching. Moreover, we found a statistically significant positive correlation between tutors' research outputs and their tendency to use their own work toward research-informed teaching. Another observation was that science tutors' teaching content contained a significantly greater amount of their own research compared with non-science tutors
