SED IE 603 Project Analysis and Planning for Urban Educational Development: The course is designed as a workshop in which students learn a set of planning techniques and apply these techniques in the design of real projects or programs of their own choosing. Emphasis is on showing how a proposed development project can be expected to contribute, at some level, to the resolution of an important social problem and designing a persuasive project proposal.
