Demonstrate awareness of the major theories of development and show how they are applied to development practice.
Module Title: Theories of Development and Globalisation
Module Code: AI5201
To provide students with a detailed overview and critical analysis of theories of development, theories of globalisation and assessment of the contemporary globalising processes. To relate these theories to the practice of development, both in terms of macro strategies of social and political change, and micro strategies of local participation and examine how these particularly influence the developing world.
MODULE LEARNING OUTCOMES
At the end of this module, students will be able to:
- Demonstrate awareness of the major theories of development and show how they are applied to development practice.
- Evaluate the origins, implementation and consequences of development rationales in a variety of colonial contexts.
- Articulate key development themes and their respective problems.
- Analyse the graduate labour market, identifying job opportunities (whether paid or unpaid) and attendant recruitment practices.
- Apply previous learning on team roles so as to illustrate understanding of team working in the workplace, recognising and respecting differing perspectives.
- Distinguish between competing perspectives on globalisation and critically analyse these approaches in the light of contemporary development processes.
- Critically evaluate and analyse the strengths and weaknesses of each of the theories and how they relate to practice of development.
- Compare and contrast a) own skills, behaviours, attitudes and competences with those prized by graduate employers, and propose personal actions to bring these closer together.
- Analyse how globalisation influences particular development trajectories, including understanding how these competing perspectives lead to different expectations concerning development potentials
