Description: The field of development studies is expanding and should continue to grow as momentum toward global interdependence and awareness builds. It is especially important in this burgeoning field that responsible and practical teaching resources such as Teaching Global Development be made available. This unique book presents a versatile guide for faculty interested in teaching in a wide variety of areas associated with global issues and Third World development. Focusing on pedagogical techniques and strategies for curriculum development and reform, this volume will also be of interest to faculty of any other discipline who are interested in inserting a global perspective into their courses. Teaching Global Development consists of three sections. The first part, "Essays in Development Education", contains six interdisciplinary papers that grapple with specific concerns of development educators. Some of the issues addressed are ethics and development, incorporating the humanities into development education, student activism and pedagogy, and development education and mass media. The next section includes seven course outlines, and rather than simply reproducing their syllabi, the contributors also discuss in brief essays their courses and teaching practices. These essays are a guide through the varieties of development education and draw attention to course design, use of texts, and the lessons of teaching experience. The final section, "Annotated Bibliography", responds to what is perhaps the most frequent request among college-level development educators: the call for a thorough, annotated discussion of books for select areas of development studies. The categories included in the bibliographyare theory, economics, environment, food and hunger, gender, democracy and grassroots power, and refugeeism. In addition, a number of the essays include extensive discographies and listings of video resources.
