Short PowerPoint Presentation (5 to 6 slides) and a 4-5-page word document. Students will be asked to develop a proposal for a development intervention of their choice. Students are free to choose topics that interest them or that they have worked in the past. These proposals are not supposed to be completely professional, but should represent students’ best effort to create an idea, gather evidence, and create an initial plan to transform this idea into practice.
For example, successful students will demonstrate thoughtfulness by considering how the local context (history, geographical area, and culture) affects their plan. They will also be asked to consider which theories, practices, stakeholders, and implementation issues are the most relevant to their individual projects. Instructors will supervise students closely during office hours and group appointments. The final deliverable consists of a written document and a PPT presentation.
