ICT Policy for Development: Syllabi Africa & Eastern Europe and Asia

Course syllabi elaborated for UPenn CGCS & World Bank

Two course curriculum and syllabi for teaching the fundamentals of ICT4D

I developed the first syllabus part of collaboration between CGCS and the World Bank. It features a two-week module on Eastern Europe and Central Asia. I developed a second version of the syllabus, with a two week module on Africa, funded by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York to conduct research on ICTs, state-building and peace-building in Africa at CGCS.

Brief description of the course from the syllabus: 

This course reviews fundamentals of Information and Communication (ICT) for development, with a focus on policymaking, regulation and strategy building. It covers international perspectives and national case studies. It teaches the economic, social, and political role of ICTs in the development dynamic and asks what can be done to reap the full benefits. Topics include digital innovation, conceptual frameworks of digital transformations, national policy strategies, ICT regulation and market structure, broadband technology, and significant applications, such as e-government.
