Template for Documenting Case Studies
Case Studies are comprised of:
- A description of the practice itself
- A description of the problems or issues addressed -- in context, taking into account cultural, situational and organizational factors
- Analysis of why a given practice is good -- what factors contribute to its success and enable changes?
- Analysis of key metrics (i.e., reduced curriculum development time by 20% over 6 month period; increased learning / retention rates by XX% over XX months)
- Background information on the lead organisation and relevant partners
- Timeline of project activities and milestones - from start to finish
What is the Case Study?
Give a short summary (75-100 words)
What is the Content Focus?
- 15 - 25 words
- what are the main keywords
- Name of Organization
- Location: City, Country
Who is responsible for programming?
- Who (role, function)
- What is their position / title?
- Their Organization
What are / have been the Successful Learning Program OR Intervention?
Who are the Users? E.g. Stakeholders, Audience, Learners
What is the Format?
Why was the Learning Programme(s) originally created?
What problem / challenge did it address?
Explain. Use metrics (numbers) if possible.
A needs analysis conducted by XXXX in 2000, identified 70% failure rates of secondary students as the top local priority. A simple effective media programme was designed to address it.
As a Result of the Successful Learning Programme, What Happened?
Good practices result from success factors or interventions.
- The organization's commitment to the process --- For example, they provided a significant block of prime time for the programmes (now 4.5 hours per week) and free access for teacher-producers to the internet to expand their access to new ideas and information sources;
- Focus on Long-Term Goals -- Building local capacities is a long term process and needs to grow organically; the Madanpokhara project was designed with long term goals in mind, essentially following students through their last three years of secondary schooling; and;
- Investment by the Community -- The programmes addressed a critical need for the whole community and therefore people (rather than donors) have invested to sustain it -- resources (the radio station), expertise (teachers), time (students), support (parents).
Learning / Improvement
- What did you learn from this / what could be improved and why?
- If performance targets were not achieved, also explain.
Project Timeline / Key Milestones
Describe the project's timeline and key milestones, from start to finish (with major dates, if possible).
