Course description

This course will help MDP students gain competence in applied, professional work in development practice. Students will carry out an analysis of the information generated during their 2023 summer field practicum projects, gaining experience in the analysis of information and in the interpretation of results, linking findings across disciplines and scales. Based on feedback received on the course, a major emphasis will be placed on discussing progress on different sections of the field practicum final reports in small groups and sharing a sampling of the results of these group discussions with the overall class. Space will also be created for individual work – including planning -- in consultation with the course instructors and course facilitator and invited faculty and students who support specific class sessions. Finally, class presentations and discussions will focus on aspects relating to the development of key sections of the field practicum final reports.
