CARM/D 6625: Global Field Studies Practicum in Conflict ResolutionInstructor: Dr. Elena Bastidasbastidas@nova.edu | (954) 559-5068
This course is developed around principles of multidisciplinary conflict resolution which promote interaction in communities through research, learning, and practice. The theme of the course is International Development and concentrates on providing the theoretical and practical skills to understand the interaction between conflict and development, preparing students to work towards attaining sustainable development initiatives. As part of the course, students travel to the Coastal, Andean and Amazon Regions of one of the most bio-diverse countries in the world. In these different ecosystems students are exposed to diverse communities of researchers, practitioners, policy makers, who share with students their experience and career journeys. For their final project students are expected to work with a partner organization developing research, training, or consultancy projects where students apply theoretical concepts within a practical framework.
This course is open to all graduate students. Students can take it as a practicum or an elective course. This course is accepted as an elective for all concentrations in DCRS.
This is a summer hybrid course that includes an online component and a two-week intensive program in Ecuador during June 8 to June 22, 2018. There will be 2 online sessions prior to the trip and 2 after the trip in Go To Training.
After an orientation and introductory sessions a charter bus takes the group to different locations of the Ecuadorian Coast, Sierra, and Amazon. In each location there will be a combination of practicum activities, in addition to tours, and development project visits.
During the trip we will stay at Hotels in the city of Quito and Guayaquil, hostels in the rural areas
