Development Issues - a course for Transition Year
This course began in response to schools who felt that development or global issues needed a specific place within their school study programme. A partnership of teachers, students, NGOs and a third level institution have been working together over the past 4 years to develop a unique resource and approach to engaging students with development issues that affect our place in the world today. The course has been tried and tested in the classroom and has been continually adapted with input from all partners. An online resource is available either at CDPC, Self Help Africa or www.developmenteducation.ie and a CD-ROM is available which contains the relevant information needed to implement the course in your school.
This Transition Unit was developed in accordance with the NCCA template and Guidelines on writing Transition Units.
