DEVT 2200 - International Development Practice II

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2019

This course addresses social development practice from the perspective of bilateral donors such as Australian Aid or UK Department for International Development (DFID). It does this by exposing students to the process of project cycle management; the process development specialists go through in designing a development program. Using actual development organisation documents, such as program designs students will examine the multidisciplinary work that goes into program design, including: (i) undertaking formative social, political and economic analysis; (ii) setting objectives; (iii) defining, monitoring activities; (iv) considering gender; (v) thinking about sustainability and the environment; (vi) how to capture the impacts associated with development programs. The course is heavily geared towards small group discovery, with small groups undertaking practical exercises geared towards building real-world international development skills.
