The Eightfold Path Define the Problem Assemble some Evidence Construct the Alternatives Select the Criteria Project the Outcomes Confront the Tradeoffs Decide Tell your Story
Where are we- Contextualized transfers. What is the business of policy about? What have we learnt from comparative cross national studies so far. What do they not tell us? Why education? Education & development as a HR – marginalized sections 7
In the news… Africa Learning Barometer - http://www.brookings.edu/research/inte ractives/africa-learning-barometer http://www.brookings.edu/research/inte ractives/africa-learning-barometer
Questions from the forum - Reimers et al. argue that the first step of achieving contextualized transfer is to determine what the needs of the community are, "as perceived by the various groups that have an interest in the education enterprise" (p 419). Could there be conflicts between what the government, the community, the students, and local NGOs believe are relevant needs, and whose ideas should receive the most weight? In assembling evidence, would the act of interviewing a diplomat, non for profit organization, or world leader, in the particular country being examined, be considered supportive information to factual data or could this first hand view be used as actual concrete data? How can we encourage the use of contextualized transfer of policies when un- contextualized adoption may appear as easier, faster, and cheaper?
