This guide provides a step-by-step process for teaching undergraduates about diverse economies and action research.
It is based on two courses taught as part of the Global Studies and Social Entrepreneurship (GSSE) program at the School of Global Studies at Thammasat University, Thailand. The first course focuses on in-class instruction and uses a team-based learning approach for the delivery of course contents. The second course takes place in northern Thailand as a 3-week community-based field immersion initiative during which students are housed with local hosts.
This third year undergraduate course teaches the basics of development theory then introduces community economies as a form of postdevelopment theory and practice. The textbook is Take Back the Economy. For more resources for teaching Take Back the Economy, click here.
Kelly Dombroski also has a series of teaching video on her YouTube Channel, click here.
