Economic Literacy for Civil Society: Introductory E-Learning course
Global course delivered via Internet 29 October to 22 December, 2006

Course Description
This eight-week Internet-based course provides an introduction to
development economics, focusing on economic policies and their linkages
with growth and poverty reduction. After describing basic poverty and
national account relationships and the relationship between growth
and poverty, the course turns to individual policy areas. These include
the various roles of government, including providing a backdrop for the
effective operation of a market economy, and conducting fiscal policy.
Policies covering monetary and exchange rate issues, the financial
sector, trade, and institutional development are also covered in the
course.

Audience
The goal of this course is to give civil society organizations an
exposure
to economic issues and to the linkages between economic policies,
growth
and poverty to enhance their ability to participate in the design and
implementation of poverty reduction strategies. In addition to members
of
civil society the course will be useful for students and particulars
who
want to get an introduction or to refresh their knowledge of
development
economics. Participants from around the world are encouraged to
register.
Please note that this is an introductory course. It is not designed
for
members of the academia or
people with a strong background in economics.

Course structure
We will be using materials specifically prepared for this course and
additional suggested readings related to the topics being discussed
each
week. The course will be structured via 8 week-long modules. We will
post
the reading materials for each week at the end of the previous week
(Fridays). Participants will be expected to read the course materials
during the week-end and at the beginning of the week. During the week
there will be an online discussion (not in real time) among
participants,
guided by the course moderators. Participants can also ask questions
about
the materials, which will be answered by
the moderators during the week or by the authors of the course manual
at
the end of the week. There will be no tests or assignments at the end
of
the course. Participants will not be awarded a certificate. Total
time
commitment for participants is expected to range from 6 - 8 hours per
week.

Fee
Participants will not be charged a fee for this course.

Requirements
The course will be conducted in English over the Internet, so Internet
connection and the ability to participate in the online discussion are
key
pre-requisites for participants.

Details on how to access WebCT, the e-learning platform that will be
used
for the course, will be sent via email.
