1. These first two foundational courses provide students with 12 important steps in the development of a project. Students receive a set of project templates which transfer into the advanced classes for further development. We will be using students' participatory needs assessments, activity research, log frames and proposals from their projects developed in the first two courses in the advanced courses.
2. Students actually develop real projects with real communities in the first two courses. The advanced courses are the natural next step for the student’s projects. Perhaps their project was a nutrition project or a climate adaptation or a water project or an agriculture project and they need access to more specialized information for refining their project. The advanced courses are designed to do exactly that.
Participants bring the projects they developed in the first two classes into the advanced classes for further work. Students don’t have time to, nor are the advanced courses structured for developing new projects.
