International Development and Education with Cross Cultural Communication

This course will appeal to anyone concerned about development issues, government policy and the reduction of poverty using entrepreneurial ideas. It will develop an understanding of: how cultures and human behaviour reflexively interconnect; school provision in developing countries; the behaviours of key players in international development; developments in education provision relating to the interactions of entrepreneurs, governments and international agencies; philosophical and historical debates on the role of government and markets in education. A key focus is Professor Sugata Mitra's research. This explores the potential of self organised learning in communities around the world. The 2 to 4 week placement module offers an exciting opportunity to visit a developing country. This self-funded visit will provides an invaluable experience.
