DCID facilitates sharing of research findings and methods of its faculty to global network

Taking responsibility for the Research Technical Assistance Center (RTAC) subcontract in its fourth year at Duke, DCID showcased the research and expertise of its development faculty through a series of webinars presented to a network of academics and practitioners around the world. The network was one component of the RTAC initiative created by USAID “to promote evidence-based policies and programs… through research, specialized training, convenings, and short term-technical assistance.”

Working with NORC at the University of Chicago, DCID-affiliated faculty covered the following topics in 1-2 hour short webinars:

Kerilyn Schewel: Introduction to Qualitative and Mixed-Methods Research

Manoj Mohanan: Efforts to introduce community-based accountability interventions for delivery of public services. Examples from different countries.
