14-26 Sept. 2008
The Human Development Report Office of UNDP, the Human Development and Capability Association (HDCA), and the University of Oxford are pleased to announce the fifth training course on Human Development: From Theory to Practice. The course draws on the extensive intellectual resources of Oxford, as well as the practical experience of leading analysts from international development agencies.
The aim of this course is to provide training on the theory and practical applications of the Human Development and Capability concepts. The course is designed to be an intensive learning experience for both practitioners within and outside of UNDP who have a long-standing interest and experience in development issues.
The course will contain a mix of applied training sessions, CD-ROM based exercises, quantitative techniques, computer training and traditional classroom teaching. The course is designed for an audience of professionals and policy makers involved in development issues. The training course will cover applied problems of relevance to human development in a dynamic, interactive and stimulating environment.
The cost of the course is $6,500, which covers tuition as well as accommodation and meals at St. Catherine’s College for the duration of the programme. This sum does not include travel costs to and from Oxford. Due to limited space (a maximum of 50), those who are interested must apply, preferably by going to our online application form, or by swiftly sending an application form, a statement of interest, and a copy of their Curriculum Vitae to HDRO's office in New York. No financial aid is available for this course, and applications will only be considered from candidates who have already secured full funding. The deadline for application is 15 June 2008.
