Conflict and development free course icon

Society, Politics & Law 

Conflict and development

Conflict is found in all societies and takes a variety of forms. Any development intervention must deal with both the causes of conflict and its consequences. Additionally, some development interventions themselves generate conflict within societies. This online module addresses the multi-faceted nature of conflict: the complex causes, the diverse impacts conflicts have on development, and the range of actions that can help mitigate conflicts. By equipping development managers and others working on or in conflict situations with both analytical and practical tools, the module will help them to intervene in ways that are sensitive to these complex contexts.

The networked practitioner

New opportunities for sharing knowledge and engaging with others are transforming the practices of educators and learners. However, many of us use social media and open content in what Lawrence Lessig described as 'read-only' engagement. This module will develop your practice into new forms of active and purposeful networked 'readwrite' activity. Working on a project that you devise, you will share your ideas and practice using a variety of forums, online tools and an Open Studio that you share with your fellow students. The module culminates in the H818 Online Conference, which brings together students, invited speakers, staff, and alumni. Projects explore how to enhance your own educational practice, while addressing key themes in online and distance education. You will also actively visualise and critically assess your own engagement with online networks and open practice.
