Certificate Program in Development Communication

Date and time: April 9, 2018 9:00 AM - April 13, 2018 5:30PM

Venue: TISS Mumbai Campus


Development Communication is distinct from communication used by corporates and for-profit organizations. Whether it is advocacy, research communication, or fund-raising, the underlying principle in development communication is social good and sustainability which needs to be factored into all communication. This creates a whole new language, syntax, style, and outputs that are used only by this sector. The program will unpack development communication, and in the process provide participants with guidelines, frameworks, tips, and tools which could be put to use straightaway.


  • Participants learn the art of writing clearly, concisely and cohesively, including referencing.
  • Participants understand the principles and processes in campaign design, and how to develop a successful format.
  • Participants become familiar with globally accepted templates for development communication outputs: Reports, policy briefs, policy memos, concept notes, and proposal writing.
  • Participants learn how to turn case studies into human interest stories for the print, broadcast, and social media to increase their reach and impact on civil society.
  • Participants discover what is business storytelling, when to use stories, the six types of stories, and how to tell a persuasive story—the script.
  • Participants gain an understanding of how to become a better public speaker, what goes into the presentation checklist, and how to use visuals and presentation structures in presentations.


Learning is through a variety of interactive and participative techniques including exercises, worksheets, discussions, group work, and role play. The crux of the methodology used is an emphasis on learning through doing. These are supported with presentations on related theoretical frameworks.

Target Audience

  • Development sector professionals whose jobs demand effective writing skills and production of writing outputs to communicate with stakeholder groups.
