About the course

Departing from the global health and sustainability agenda, this course aims to introduce and train you in the use of different research tools and methods to support the implementation of actions in complex contexts, characterised by dilemmas such as food security; climate change, water security, emerging disease threats; etc.

During the course, you have the opportunity to learn about, apply, and constructively criticise tools, methods and approaches for stakeholder facilitation and learning process design - devices that ranges from theoretical models, typologies and conceptual frameworks, social reflexive process tools, soft system methodologies, story-telling, and heuristics. You will apply these in both class settings and actual practice, focusing on global health and sustainability challenges. The course will include a significant field component where you will have the opportunity to apply tools, methods and approaches and reflect upon facilitation and process design for project or conflict management. Within the course, you will have the option to focus upon one of two areas within stakeholder facilitation and process design; conflict management or project management.
