Teaching on human development and capabilities

Do you teach about human development and capabilities?

In 2020-21, we are organising a series of online workshops to bring together HDCA members who teach on human development and capabilities. To help get a picture of what is currently being taught by who, and which resources people would find helpful, we are also running a short survey in October. The first workshop will be for people to come together, share experiences on teaching and discuss what sort of support the HDCA could provide.

So if you teach about human development and / or capabilities, in any kind of educational setting, and in any academic field or topic, we would love to hear from you!

  • Please fill out our short survey on Google Forms by Monday 2nd November:
  • And please attend our first online workshop, ‘Teaching on human development and capabilities’ which will be held on Wednesday 11th November, from 1-2.30 pm UTC. (We aim to either record this, or write a summary, for members who are interested but unable to attend). Please register here
  • The other workshop dates this academic year will be: 10th Feb 2021 (1-2.30pm UCT) and 12th May 2021 (1-2.30pm UCT+1).
  • Please note that these workshops are for HDCA members; numbers are limited for the first meeting but if there is more demand we will develop a format to include more people. If you would like to become a member, please visit our membership page

Thank you!
