The 2nd Disability and Development (D&D) course focuses on specific issues related to disability and rehabilitation in the context of development. The course will provide the student with skills in the field of project planning and management using a logical framework method. It offers the student opportunities to go through and practice the entire process of project management through experiential learning. Another major subject will be monitoring and evaluation methods, currently used in the field of CBR programmes. The importance and use of Management Information Systems (MIS) will be discussed in some detail, since this is a cornerstone of good monitoring and evaluation.
