African Universities’ Research Approaches (AURA) Programme: Research Proposal for Kenyatta

Published on 9 December 2022

This
proposal
is
divided
into
seven
parts,
with
this
overview
forming
the
first
section.
The
second
section
provides
an
overall
summary
of
the
AURA
programme

this
is
at
a
high
level
and
includes
details
about
the
different
strands
of
the
programme,
as
well
as
looking
at
anticipated
results
and
impact.
Then
the
proposal
moves
on
to
the
literature
review.
This
provides
a
justification
for
our
thinking
around
the
programme,
including
evidence
to
support
key
programmatic
design
decisions
particularly
around
the
importance
of
developing
research
capacity
at
Kenyatta
as
well
as
on
the
importance
of
innovative,
pedagogical
practices.
Section
three
spells
out
the
programme
design
in
greater
detail.
This
section
includes
citations
from
the
literature
review
to
emphasise
the
evidence-­‐based
nature
of
the
AURA
programme
design.
Section
four
provides
greater
detail
of
the
programme’s
design
and
key
facets,
such
as
looking
at
the
role
project
coordinators
and
the
ALIRT
teams
play
in
the
programme
implementation.
Section
five
focuses
on
the
AURA
diagnostics.
The
AURA
diagnostics
are
a
tool
the
programme
uses
to
capture
information
from
partnering
institutions
through
content
analysis,
surveys,
interviews
and
focus
groups.
The
aim
of
the
diagnostics
is
to
ensure
programmatic
decisions
are
made
in
a
collaborative
manner
using
inputs
directly
from
the
individuals
participating
in
the
programme.
This
section
contains
an
overview
of
the
different
research
methods
used.
Section
six
zones
in
on
Kenyatta
more
specifically
and
looks
more
specifically
at
the
steps
the
AURA
programme
will
be
taking
with
your
institution.
This
document
concludes
with
the
appendices,
which
include
a
full
list
of
references
used
throughout
the
document.
