Technology plays an important part in the community development process. This course covers the principles of using technology effectively in community development, and uses examples and case studies to illustrate successful technology implementations.
After completing this course, students will be able to select appropriate technology for their community development project and develop a plan to assure successful implementation.
To be successful, applying technology requires the practitioner to carefully consider and select the appropriate technologies; incorporate hard technologies (solar cells, irrigation systems and other tools) and effective techniques for using them; and develop a plan encompassing all of the activities associated with using technology, from the initial investigation to maintenance and support
