Study will be conducted through lectures, readings, group discussions, and visiting talks from some leading practitioners. The readings will be drawn from current Australian and International CCD best practice. Students will be made aware of the principles of community development – empowerment, social change, human rights, cultural values and diversity, local knowledge, inclusiveness, community building, sustainability and global/local interfaces.
