This paper presents an analysis of the contribution of the collaborative work developed by a Portuguese community, involving teachers and researchers, and created in the context of the project ‘Investigação e práticas lectivas em Educação em Ciência: Dinâmicas de interacção’ (IPEC), to the development of innovative practices in formal education. The community members developed, implemented, and evaluated curricular modules about sustainability, through continued interactions in an online platform and some face-to-face meetings. The case study revealed that the community created challenging innovative practices, since we uncover: a evidence of 13 of the 14 descriptors of innovative teaching practices taken into account for the analysis b disruptive practices when compared to traditional practices, presenting high risk-taking, large scope and complexity. In the final session, we present suggestions concerning design issues for web-based communities, such as the need to combine online interaction with face-to-face meetings.

The collection of environmental samples presents a responsibility to return information to the affected participants. Explaining complex and often ambiguous scientific information to a lay audience is a challenge. As shown by environmental justice research, this audience frequently has limited formal education, increasing the challenge for researchers to explain the data collected, the risk indicated by the findings, and action the affected community should take. In this study we describe the development and implementation of a risk communication strategy for environmental pesticide samples collected in the homes of Latino/a migrant and seasonal farmworkers in a community-based participatory research project. The communication strategy was developed with community input and was based on face-to-face meetings with members of participating households. Using visual displays of data effectively conveyed information about individual household contamination and placed it in the context of community findings. The lack of national reference data and definitive standards for action necessitated a simplified risk message. We review the strengths and weaknesses of such an approach and suggest areas for future research in risk communication to communities affected by environmental health risks.

Parents and adolescents (mean age, 15.7 years) from 177 adoptive families participating in the second wave of the Minnesota/Texas Adoption Research Project were interviewed about their post-adoption contact arrangements. The sample included families with no contact, stopped contact, contact without meetings, and contact with face-to-face meetings between the adolescent and birth mother. Openness arrangements were dynamic, and different openness arrangements were associated with different experiences and feelings. Adoptive families with contact reported having higher levels of satisfaction about their openness arrangements, experiencing more positive feelings about the birth mother, and possessing more factual and personal knowledge about the birth mother than did families without contact. Adolescents and adoptive mothers in the contact with meetings group reported the greatest satisfaction with their openness arrangements; those with no contact or stopped contact reported the least satisfaction with their arrangements. Participants having no contact were more likely to want the intensity of contact to increase in the future rather than stay the same. Many participants already having contact wanted it to increase in the future. Fewer than 1 percent of all participants wanted to see the intensity of contact decrease.

Social networks have been used to understand how information flows through an organization as well as identifying individuals that appear to have control over this information flow. Such individuals are identified as being central nodes in a graph representation of the social network and have high "betweenness" values. Rather than looking at graphs derived from email, on-line forums, or telephone connections, we consider sequences of bipartite graphs that represent face-to-face meetings between individuals, and define a new metric to identify the information elite individuals. We show that, in our simulations, individuals that attend many meetings with many different people do not always have high betweenness values, even though they seem to be the ones that control the information flow.; Singapore-MIT Alliance (SMA)

The purpose of this learning strategy is to develop a structured process for generating, sharing, capturing, and disseminating knowledge about what works in scaling up and sustaining handwashing programs. The authors are undertaking this learning process to enable policy-makers to make evidence-based decisions and to enable the implementation of large-scale programs. Key outcomes of the learning will be knowledge products that can be used both for advocacy and for putting into action cost-effective approaches and tools to ease replication. The learning in this project will benefit not only current stakeholders but also future stakeholders interested in and committed to promoting effective handwashing behavior-change programs. The remainder of this strategy paper is divided into five sections: project background; learning goals and principles; learning culture, tools, and platforms; learning processes; and organizational aspects of learning.

ICT is fundamentally changing the way in which government representatives, citizens, business and other agents of the state interact throughout the world as well as in Africa. The public service sector has strategic significance as it impacts not only on the well-being of individuals, families and communities and on individual national governments but indirectly on the stability of the global economy. The associated high expectations, particularly regarding the speed and flexibility with which public service providers can respond to individual requests, provide feedback on programs and expenditure and handle national crises, are extremely challenging. Efficient service delivery is frequently hampered by program developers who do not listen sufficiently carefully to the poor and hence are not able to identify their needs and prioritize them. Planning that focuses on supplier interests rather than those of the end-user is also a problem.

A successful knowledge-sharing effort requires a focus on more than simply the transfer of the specific knowledge. Instead, many of the activities to be undertaken need to focus on structuring and implementing the arrangement in a way that bridges both existing and potential relationship issues, and examining the form and location of the knowledge to ensure its complete transfer. In other words, while the activities used to share knowledge, such as document exchanges, presentations, job rotations, etc., are important, overcoming the factors that can impede, complicate and even harm knowledge internalization are equally important in determining the ultimate results of a knowledge-sharing effort. Accordingly, any evaluations of the Bank s knowledge-sharing efforts need to incorporate assessments of its use of activities related to understanding the form and embedded knowledge, establishing and managing appropriate administrative structures, and facilitating the transfer of the knowledge.

The roll-out of devolution has been formally underway since March 2013 when county governments were established under the 2010 Constitution. The period under review is April 2013 to June 2014, which enables observations of public engagement in preparation of the 2013-2014 county budgets (between April-June 2013) and the 2014-2015 county budgets (between September 2013-June 2014). This paper reviews initial county initiatives on public participation and possible interventions to improve the overall design and implementation of participatory systems going forward.

This first round of eight case studies was completed in 2012. The case studies were prepared examining the experience of a number of countries that have passed Right to Information (RTI) legislation within the last 15 years: Albania, India, Mexico, Moldova, Peru, Romania, Uganda, and the United Kingdom. Each country case study assesses four dimensions critical to the effective implementation of RTI legislation as follows: 1. The scope of the information that the law covers, which determines whether an RTI law can serve as the instrument of more transparent and accountable governance as envisaged by its advocates. For example, a law that leaves too many categories of information out of its purview, that does not adequately apply to all agencies impacting public welfare or using public resources, or that potentially contradicts with other regulations, like secrecy laws, will not be effective. 2. Issues related to public sector capacity and incentives, additional key functions and demands within the public sector created by RTI...

Students studying in a second language medium may find face to face meetings daunting. Teachers of English for Academic Purposes, working to help international postgraduate students acculturate successfully to a particular English-speaking university department, have been hampered by a lack of information on the discourse practices of these meetings. This paper reports findings from an analysis of transcripts of meetings between two student/supervisor pairs in agricultural science. The supervisors were native English speakers and students were international postgraduates and second language speakers of English. The analysis suggests that these students did not take up turns at talk without very clear signals to do so, and did not act to repair misunderstandings that went beyond the surface propositional level. It is suggested that examples of authentic interaction such as these could usefully be included in language-based training programs to enhance the success of intercultural supervision and other types of transactions for students, supervisors and other interlocutors.; Margaret Cargill

Scenario-based methods for evaluating software architecture require a large number of stakeholders to be collocated for evaluation meetings. Collocating stakeholders is often an expensive exercise. To reduce expense, we have proposed a framework for supporting software architecture evaluation process using groupware systems. This paper presents a controlled experiment that we conducted to assess the effectiveness of one of the key activities, developing scenario profiles, of the proposed groupware-supported process of evaluating software architecture. We used a cross-over experiment involving 32 teams of three 3rd and 4th year undergraduate students. We found that the quality of scenario profiles developed by distributed teams using a groupware tool were significantly better than the quality of scenario profiles developed by face-to-face teams (p < 0.001). However, questionnaires indicated that most participants preferred the face-to-face arrangement (82%) and 60% thought the distributed meetings were less efficient. We conclude that distributed meetings for developing scenario profiles are extremely effective but that tool support must be of a high standard or participants will not find distributed meetings acceptable.; Muhammad Ali Babar...

This systematic review examines the effects of the subset of restorative justice programs that has been tested most extensively: a face-to-face Restorative Justice Conference (RJC) “that brings together offenders, their victims, and their respective kin and communities, in order to decide what the offender should do to repair the harm that a crime has caused” (Sherman and Strang, 2012: 216). The Review investigates the effects of RJCs on offenders’ subsequent convictions (or in one case arrests) for crime, and on several measures of victim impact. The review considers only randomized controlled trials in which victim and offenders consented to meet prior to random assignment, the analysis of which was based on the results of an “intention-to-treat” analysis. A total of ten experiments with recidivism outcomes were found that met the eligibility criteria, all of which also had at least one victim impact measure. Our synthesis of these experiments shows that, on average, RJCs cause a modest but highly cost-effective reduction in repeat offending, with substantial benefits for victims. A cost-effectiveness estimate for the seven United Kingdom (UK) experiments found a ratio of 8 times more benefit in costs of crimes prevented than the cost of delivering RJCs.

This report is the second in a program of evaluations that the independent evaluation group (IEG) is conducting on the learning that takes place through World Bank projects. Learning and knowledge are treated as parts of a whole and are presumed to be mutually reinforcing. The evaluation program addresses the following overarching questions: how well has the World Bank learned in its lending operations?; and what is the scope for improving how it generates, accesses, and uses learning and knowledge in these operations? Evaluation two includes findings from seven country case studies and interviews with Bank staff about their early experience of working within the Bank’s new global practices structure, which became operational on July 1, 2014. The aim is to assess the pre-FY2015 evidence in light of the new structure and roles, and to ask how long-term trends are likely to be modified as reforms evolve. Surveys and interviews reveal that, when it comes to managing projects, Bank staff rely first and foremost on a process of informal learning...

How do you bring public accountability for millions of dollars to a region where the population is largely uninformed and lacks the savvy to monitor the actions of the authorities? From 2006 to 2011, the mining industry in Peru transferred over $4,774 million in royalties to municipalities located in key mining regions, in compliance with a 2004 mining canon law, but local officials have not always put these funds to the best use. With the support of Canadian, U.S., U.K. and Norwegian (through CommDev) donor partners, International Finance Corporation (IFC) responded to this need with an innovative project: Improving Municipal Investment (Mejorando la Inversion Municipal in Spanish, or MIM). MIM Peru empowers the population gives them a voice to demand accountability from their authorities in the use of royalties. For this Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) initiative, communications are essential. And the project team learned that developing effective communication is not a sprint it's a marathon! This smart lesson shares lessons learned about communications during project implementation.

In 2009, in the midst of the financial crisis, analysts were concerned that banks in Nepal were dangerously overexposed to inflated real estate and equity markets. Nepal's Central Bank (NRB) decided to evaluate its commercial banks, but needed outside expertise and assistance for stress-testing its banks and assessing the damages that could result from economic shocks. Standard International Monetary Fund (IMF) models for evaluating banks in developed economies, however, proved too complex and were unsuitable for the circumstances of a small developing country. Meanwhile, the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) had been carrying out quarterly stress-testing of banks in Pakistan. Upon hearing about SBP's capabilities from the World Bank, NRB leadership was eager to learn how to apply Pakistan's regulatory analysis in Nepal. The World Bank facilitated and funded a knowledge exchange between the two central banks so that NRB staff could learn to use a simplified stress-testing, scenario-based model to evaluate the financial stability of Nepal's banks...

Resumo: A insuficiência cardíaca, já denominada de epidemia do século XXI é, de entre as doenças cardiovasculares, a única cuja incidência e prevalência continuam a crescer, apesar dos imensos progressos feitos na área da terapêutica nas últimas duas décadas. Caracteriza-se por elevada mortalidade – superior à do conjunto das neoplasias malignas -, grande morbilidade, consumo de recursos e custos exuberantes. É um dos problemas mais graves de Saúde Pública dos Países industrializados, cujo manejo deverá constituir uma prioridade para os Serviços Nacionais de Saúde. Todavia, o reconhecimento universal da gravidade desta situação tem originado poucas soluções concretas para conter a epidemia, cujo protagonismo não cessa de aumentar. É possível hoje prevenir, tratar de forma a retardar a evolução da doença ou até revertê-la, desde que diagnosticada atempadamente. Qualquer atitude nestas áreas pressupõe um diagnóstico correcto, precoce e completo da situação, sem o qual não haverá um tratamento adequado. O diagnóstico tem preocupado bem menos os investigadores e os clínicos que a terapêutica. É, contudo, comprovadamente difícil a todos os níveis dos Cuidados de Saúde e constitui certamente a primeira barreira ao controlo da situação. OBJECTIVOS: À luz do conhecimento actual e da nossa própria experiência...

As technology becomes increasingly more sophisticated, means and demand for digital communication are increasing. The geographical expansion of the business world has made communication alternatives critical to working together more effectively. Face to face meetings may not be possible or the most cost and time efficient approach. Also, there is a move towards working at home, telecommuting, by using electronic communication for interaction (Fitzgerald 1993). Thus, electronic correspondence is becoming essential and we are witnessing a move towards higher performance and potential for communication alternatives. Knowing the options and their appropriateness is a competitive advantage. "In a information society dominated by computers and communications, value is increased by knowledge, as well as by the speed of movement of that knowledge." (Fitzgerald 1994). Graphic designers rely on strong communication with their clients. Clients' needs must be expressed to the designer and designer's solutions must be communicated for approval. This process is repeated at several stages: initial, revision, and final. Traditionally, when face to face meetings were not feasible, comprehensives were mailed to the client. With the current move towards electronic communication...

A presente pesquisa teve como um dos objetivos contribuir para os estudos sobre a prática dos professores diante do desafio de trabalhar com as diferenças nas salas de aula regulares, tendo como foco o trabalho com alunos com deficiência intelectual e como cenário, a implementação de políticas públicas favoráveis à educação inclusiva. A pesquisa, de caráter qualitativo, além de contar com dados das entrevistas realizadas com professores do ensino fundamental II de uma escola da rede pública do município de São Paulo, recomendada por um CEFAI (Centro de Formação e Acompanhamento à Inclusão), considerou dados coletados na observação da escola. Partiu-se da hipótese de que o professor constrói e reconstrói continuamente um patrimônio pedagógico conjunto de saberes e representações - ao longo de sua trajetória profissional, utilizando saberes diferenciados e estruturados no interior de uma certa cultura escolar. O objetivo da pesquisa foi identificar e analisar as características do patrimônio pedagógico de um grupo de professores de uma das salas da referida escola, da qual era aluno um menino com deficiência intelectual, e também do coordenador pedagógico responsável pelo ciclo II da escola. A análise de dados levou em conta o conceito de cultura escolar enunciado por Dominique Julia e complementado por Antonio Viñao Frago e também a tipologia dos saberes docentes elaborada por Maurice Tardif e Claude Lessard. O conceito de diferença foi apresentado a partir de reflexões de Goffman (2008)...
