Asset-based Development IDesignation: INCD 5503
This course is an introduction to asset-based planning and design as a human and organizational capacity-building approach that seeks to locate, underscore, and emphasize, in a selective way, the life-giving forces and successes within an organization, group, or community. Level I will focus on different ways of dealing with life in communities and organizations, and explore the skills of community development facilitation for practitioners. Several tools used in asset-based planning and development will be carefully examined with a view to developing proficiency in both their theory and practice. Finally, each student will propose, design, and implement a practical project using the tools of asset-based development.
