This capstone course for the Bachelor of International Development builds on the Year 2 core course International Development Practice II and enables students to immerse themselves in a program design exercise utilising real-world publicly available documents such as program design terms of reference (TORs), project reports and primary data. Using a resource pack of contextual data that focuses on the development problem of ending child marriage in Ethiopia and a program design template students will engage in intensive formative small group discovery experience work over the course of the semester. These small groups will replicate a number of roles within a development program design team, i.e. social assessment specialist, monitoring and evaluation specialist, team leader, and so on. This helps recreate the dynamics of the interdisciplinary nature of development practice. Over the course of the semester groups will work up a number of short presentations that focus on key program elements, such as logframes and monitoring and evaluation. This work is designed to allow students to grasp key international development program concepts and skills. In turn this process contributes to student's individual program design submissions.
