Imagining Development: From Vision to Action 9 days course for development practitioners

Why this course?

The development sector has widely expanded in its scope and content. It has become increasingly technical, specialised and professionalised with people from diverse disciplines and domains contributing to its endeavour. This course aims at connecting technical competencies with imagination and vision of a desired future, and locating development goals within that imagination.

The nine-day training programme on “Imagining Development: From Vision to Action” is a part of Azim Premji University’s endeavour to enhance the capacities of development practitioners working across the country. It will provide a macro perspective on development as well as a shape of the desired future. It will also help the participants locate their work within a broader framework.

What will you learn?

  • Familiarity with the emerging vision of development through ideas, concepts, and locating the self in this endeavour.
  • Awareness of various development measurements, very simple analysis and its actual use in professional engagement.
  • Overview of development domains pertaining to gender, development and sustainability.

Who should attend?

  • Working professionals in the development sector who are interested in furthering their understanding of Development.
  • Anyone fresh to the development sector and requires a broad understanding of Development.


The pedagogy would include small group discussions, large group discussions, interactive sessions, simulation exercise, reading & classroom presentations, case studies, short documentaries, and class room lectures. Emphasis will be given to learning of core ideas and  interconnections between ideas, concepts, measurements and practice to make it suitable for practitioners.
