Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course is designed to introduce the basic theory and practices in developing small-scale community projects in a participatory way. It provides an overview of project cycle management (planning, implementation, monitoring & evaluation) and logical framework approach. More importantly, students will learn how to define problems not from the outsiders’ (etic) point of view but from the insiders’ (emic) point of view. Throughout the course, emphasis will be put on how to develop projects in a cooperative, participatory and a reflective manner. Students will also learn what maybe the consequences of developing projects in a NON-participatory way and what maybe the limits and problems of participatory approaches. The course will focus on the practical application of these concepts and approaches using some real examples. Examples will be drawn from the lecturer’s own experiences mainly in South East Asia and in the field of Public Health but students can work on their own topic of interests in any country/city/town/community of their choice.
