How is development theory translated into practical outcomes? How can we make sure that a good idea leads to good development programmes and projects? This course provides you with a cutting-edge for entering into development practice as it exposes you to the real-life challenges you will face when working in development organisations. You will learn practical skills and techniques that will help you to advance and an innovative idea into a workable development project. You will learn about navigating ethical considerations in development and how to avoid (or at least minimise) harm to those receiving assistance. You will be able to explore hands-on how to develop evidence-based, participatory and context-sensitive projects, by learning how to apply necessary (research) methods for programme development. You will also learn how to understand and navigate the field of development actors, decision-making processes, and how to work collaborative and inclusive.
