International Development and Education

Remote Global Learning Course

How do local and international actors think about the role of education in international development, and how does this translate to practice? What are the practical challenges and opportunities of implementing education programming in the global south? What programs and approaches are most successful and why?

Participants in this online summer intensive course will attempt to find answers to these questions while also contemplating the specific challenges and opportunities that face organizations in the time of COVID-19. Through discussions with professionals in the field, student interviews with international practitioners, and case studies from multiple countries, students will learn how international development education actors engage in their work, reflect on the importance of flexibility and context, and deepen their understanding of education and international development.
