Defining the 'D' in ICT4D: Graduate Papers on Development, Globalisation, and ICT
2009 (English)Collection (editor) (Other academic)
IPID – the International Network for Postgraduate students in ICT4D – arranged a course in the academic year 2008/2009 as a response to several requests from IPID members for an introduction to development theories and for guidance in how to define the ‘D’ in the expression ICT4D.
The aim of the course “Development, Globalisation and ICT (Defining the ’D’ in ICT4D) – 7.5 ECTS” was thus to provide a sound foundation for advanced studies in ICT4D. The course was designed to provide insights into some of the most influential development theories. The selection was made on the basis of classical bodies of ideas with strong impact on recent notions of development.
Devoted scholars from relevant fields were invited to lecture and comment on student papers. Postgraduate students from all over the world registered for the course. Video recording was used to provide access to the lectures for those who could not attend. In the event we have eleven completed papers, which are presented in this report.
