The objectives of this course are the following:
1. To discuss prevailing definitions, ideas and assumptions about education and development.
2. To introduce students to the role international, national, and local actors (and institutions) play in education in less developed countries.
3. To engage students in examining the critical role of education in the development of nations.
4. To examine and evaluate positions and responses of government and nongovernmental actors to the challenges of social and economic inequalities.
This is a graduate level seminar. As such YOU are expected to assume major responsibility for actively contributing to each class. That is, you are responsible for completing the required readings in advance of the designated class session. You will be expected to contribute actively and positively. Active and positive engagement in class is one means of learning new material and of considering your professional and intellectual position with regard to those ideas and concepts. Note that you are responsible for assigned material NOT discussed in class.
Evaluation Criteria (20 points)
The following are examples of factors we will consider when evaluating your active and positive engagement:
You are expected to identify a non-governmental organization (NGO) involved with education and development and, pending the instructor’s approval of your organization, create a “fact sheet” describing the organization and its activities that will be distributed to the class. You should begin your NGO search, if you do not already have an NGO in mind, with the Chabbott textbook (Appendix A) or at websites such as WANGO (World Association of Non-Governmental Organizations) at http://www.wango.org/ or the United Nations’ DPI-NGO (Department of Public Information, Non-Governmental Organizations) at http://www.un.org/dpi/ngosection/dpingo-directory.asp .
Evaluation Criteria (20 points)
Your fact sheet should provide:
You are expected to choose a less-developed country and write a research paper on that country’s national education system; the International Encyclopedia of Education (reference book at the library) is a good place to start your research. Additionally, your paper should provide an in-depth discussion of some specific educational initiative that is being used as a tool for national development. The country and the educational initiative you write on MUST be approved by the instructor!
At a minimum your paper must include:
Evaluation Criteria (40 points)
The intent of the final paper is to provide students with in-depth knowledge of how nations use education as a tool for national development. Grading criteria will include:
By the end of the course, every student will conduct a brief (30 minute) class presentation based on his/her research paper.

Reasonable accommodation policy
Any student in this course who has a disability that may prevent him or her from fully demonstrating his or her abilities should contact me as soon as possible so we can discuss accommodations necessary to ensure full participation and facilitate the educational experience.
Make sure that you understand that the Student Code is applicable at the graduate level. Issues of academic integrity and honor must guide your studies. For a copy of the Code please see the UCF web page.
In this course we will utilize turnitin.com, an automated system which instructors can use to quickly and easily compare each student's assignment with billions of web sites, as well as an enormous database of student papers that grows with each submission. Accordingly, you will be expected to submit all assignments in both hard copy and electronic format. After the assignment is processed, as an instructor I receive a report from turnitin.com that states if and how another author’s work was used in the assignment. For a more detailed look at this process, visit http://www.turnitin.com.
