Building capacity for professional development: the development of teachers as facilitators in GhanaPerry, E., & Bevins, S. - 2018 - Professional Development in Education, 0(0), 1–15
In low- and middle-income countries, cascade models of teacher professional development are often used as routes to educational reform. In these models, external agents deliver professional development, which is then disseminated by in-country facilitators. However, little is known about how to support facilitators of professional development, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. In this study, we report on a model of capacity building for professional development in Ghana. In...
Ascertaining impacts of capacity building in open educational practicesKarunanayaka, S. P., & Naidu, S. - 2020 - Distance Education, 41(2), 279–302
Interest in the adoption of open educational practices (OEP) is growing, and the strongest arguments in its favor are that the adoption of such practices has the best chances of making education affordable and accessible to all. However, engagement with such practices requires the adoption of a fundamentally different set of beliefs and value systems about the role of education and educational resources in the development of societies. The development of these beliefs and values are...

One of the observable problems facing most developing nations today is the non-availability of adequately trained and well-motivated professionals with the capacity to solving problems of national development. Many University graduate professionals complain of unemployment. However, there exist substantial employment opportunities in Africa and other developing nations but the major challenge being that, the skills to match up with imminent challenges are missing.

Building State Capability: Evidence, Analysis, Action (1st ed.)Andrews, M., Pritchett, L., & Woolcock, M. - 2017 - Oxford University Press
Governments play a major role in the development process, and constantly introduce reforms and policies to achieve developmental objectives. Many of these interventions have limited impact, however; schools get built but children don't learn, IT systems are introduced but not used, plans are written but not implemented. These achievement deficiencies reveal gaps in capabilities, and weaknesses in the process of building state capability. 00This book addresses these weaknesses and gaps. It...

Developing Partnerships to Acquire Impact: The Role of Three Regional Centres’ Capacity Building Efforts for ODL Adoption in the Emerging WorldPerris, K., & McGreal, R. - 2021 - Journal of Learning for Development, 8(2), 346–363
Partnerships are central to the awareness, implementation and development of open and distance learning (ODL). It is an attribute that is distinct in the higher education sector, where ODL has made a large footprint by dispelling the notion that university enrolment is reserved for a narrow and elite demographic. The Commonwealth of Learning (COL) operates to advance the uptake of ODL amongst the 54 member states of the Commonwealth. COL leverages its work through various channels, and the...
