Development Praxis


The aim of this course is to provide students with the analytical ability and the practical skills to interrogate mainstream development policy and practice. The focus is on creating a critical awareness of the tools and techniques used by development practitioners and to apply these tools in the context of a group project writing a tender application.

By the end of this semester, students should know:

  • The relationship between development theory and practice
  • The key ideological arguments used in justifying different development practices
  • How to locate these arguments in a critical discussion of particular development tools and projects

By the end of this semester, students should be able to:

  • Find and critically evaluate a range of tools for practising development
  • Apply some of these tools in a practical development context of writing a project tender
  • Present orally and in writing a project proposal appropriate for a graduate audience
  • Work effectively in a small group
