Development Practice Lab (MPA-DP program)

The Development Practice Lab, a practical class in the MPA-DP program, uses integrated cross-sectoral hands-on training to give its students skills that are essential to development professionals.

Students in the two-semester course learn from visiting practitioners how to use the key tools, techniques, and approaches employed by development organizations when diagnosing complex problems. These include stakeholder and institutional analysis, problem mapping and causal analysis, geographic information systems, logical framework analysis, and social media, advocacy, agenda setting, and more.
