The first community capacity building class

As part of the postgraduate course I teach on community capacity building, there are workshops for students on campus. We had the first one today and there were 18 students (out of the 47 enrolled – most of whom are doing the course online) from 10 different countries.There were students from Australia, Bhutan, Canada, Liberia, Malawi, Pakistan, Philippines, Samoa, Sierra Leone and Vanuatu.

I always feel very lucky to teach this course as many of the students are are already working in capacity building related fields and they come from all around the world. Because I run the classes as workshops, it means that we get to hear about their experiences and have some interesting discussion. It will be an interesting semester.
