Ambedkar University, Delhi collaborates with PRADAN to launch an MPhil in Development Practice

 

 

Facilitating rural transformation requires intellectual resources alongside personal maturity. The programme envisages coalescing theory, research and practice, self-reflection and community engagement as well as epistemological openness to different knowledge systems/streams. It is fundamentally interdisciplinary in its approach, combining a mix of methods for transacting the curriculum, and strengthening the balance between knowledge, conceptual clarity and reflection. The programme shall also be informed by the long history of work in ?depth psychology?, so as to attend to the psychic processes of students and the rural community. This will help students cope with the stress and the hope/despair dyad of transformative work in the rural. The programme is based on a learner-centred and immersion-based pedagogy. The structure of the field and course work allows for reflection-based learning, so that the learner can draw on real life experiences to understand and engage with key conceptual ideas as well as develop grounded theory. The immersion component has multiple benefits: it can help make an informed decision about career choice, provide hands- on learning through exposure to the field under the supervision and with the support of mentors and guides, help concretise the theoretical learning of the classroom, and finally enable safe experimentation in the field under supervision. The programme will also strengthen research skills, particularly in relation to developing appropriate methodologies, both participatory and action-oriented, for answering critical questions arising from the field. It is envisaged that dissertations would involve reflective exercises applying analytical tools to understand the implications of specific development interventions in which the learner may have been involved themselves.

 

The programme provides the conceptual, methodological and emotional skills for a unique progression from understanding the rural context and problematising the developmental issues therein to engaging with processes of change and transformation. The focus on discovery and open-mindedness is coupled with intellectual rigour and the development of professional skills.

 

This is supported by the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust (SDTT).
