David Tannenwald Evaluating The Impact Of Sport Based Development Programs

  1. 1. A Proposal for A Randomized Experiment in Ghana<br />David Tannenwald, New Heights Youth, Power of Sport Summit, June 2010<br />
  2. 2. Conflicting Views<br />Nelson Mandela <br />Stephen Lewis <br />
  3. 3. Roadmap<br />I am proposing a randomized experiment in Ghana to evaluate sport-based development programs.<br />Roadmap<br />My vision for research in sport for development and peace (SDP)<br />The opportunity in Ghana<br />Advantages and limitations<br />Next Steps<br />Conclusion<br />
  4. 4. PART One: My vision for research in sdp<br />The need for and virtues of randomized experiments<br />
  5. 5. Two Main Lines of Inquiry<br />Theory<br />1. Discussion, modeling, etc. <br /> 2. Case Studies <br />Evidence<br />1. Case Studies<br /> 2. Observational Studies<br /> 3. Randomized Experiments <br />
  6. 6. Randomized Experiments<br />1. How randomized experiments work<br />2. Chief benefits<br />3. Drawbacks<br />
  7. 7. Qualifiers<br />1. I have not reviewed the entirety of the existing literature.<br />2. Many of my professors extolled the virtues of randomized experiments.<br />3. I am not suggesting randomized experiments instead of other lines of inquiry.<br />
  8. 8. Part Two: The Opportunity for a randomized experiment in Ghana<br />
  9. 9. The Existing Research Project<br />1. The research question(s)<br />2. Background (players, scope, my involvement, and other information)<br />3. The methodology <br />4. The status of the study<br />
  10. 10. Relevance for SDP<br />The survey measures many of the outcomes that sport-based development programs aim to improve.<br />Consequently, if we were to coordinate interventions in a randomly selected set of communities, we would have what would be, to my knowledge, the largest SDP randomized experiment to date.<br />
  11. 11. Part four: Advantages & limitations<br />
  12. 12. Advantages & Limitations<br />Advantages<br /> 1. Methodology<br /> 2. Instrument/research team in place<br /> 3. High-need area<br /> 4. Opportunity for multiple interventions<br /> 5. Size<br />Limitations/Obstacles<br /> 1. Imperfect instrument<br /> 2. Timing/Logistics<br /> 3. Size<br />
  13. 13. PART FIVE: NEXT STEPS<br />Design of interventions<br />2. Partners and funding<br />3. Research issues<br />4. Other<br />
  14. 14. PART Six: Conclusion<br />
