Section Description

<p>CDAE 187 is a 1-credit field course in St Lucia. To enroll in this course, you must have taken CDAE 186 and have received instructor permission.</p> <p>CDAE 186 is a 3-credit project-based, international service-learning (ISL) course, with a focus on the community and economic development of small island developing states (SIDS). Students are expected to have had previous coursework in economics, including at least one of the following: ECON 11, ECON 12, CDAE 61, and ENVS 195 or similar. Students should have an introductory understanding of project management and community development. Students registered for CDAE 186 are required to enroll in CDAE 187 during the winter semester. </p> <p>During the fall semester (CDAE 186, 3 credits), students are introduced to some of the socio-economic factors impacting small island development in the Caribbean and possible solutions through course work and readings. Special attention is paid to the small, island state of St Lucia, and its place in the Caribbean Single Market and the world economy. We will also investigate the challenges of creating sustainable development policies while also meeting the needs of a growing population and remaining competitive in the region. During this time, students are tasked with planning and organizing service-learning projects, which will be carried out during the field portion of the course. UVM has long-standing relationships with a variety of government and community partners. These partners have identified specific community needs, which the projects will address.<p> <p>During the winter field portion of the course in St Lucia (CDAE 187, 1 credit), students will implement the projects in close collaboration with local government and community partners. Instructors will take the role of “facilitators,” offering structure and support; while encouraging students to (a) demonstrate accountability and (b) apply curriculum-informed knowledge, concepts, and skills to successfully complete the projects.</p> <p>If you have any questions about the course, please email Kevin Stapleton <>.</p> <p>There is a course fee that is billed when you enroll.</p>
