Bulls, Goats, and Pedagogy: Engaging Students in Overseas Development Aid

  • William F. S. Miles (a1)
Abstract
ABSTRACT

This article illustrates the profound learning that occurs—for students and instructor alike—when a class on third-world development attempts to undertake foreign aid. With undergraduate, graduate, and departmental money, I purchased bulls and carts for farmers, and goats for widows, in two West African villages. Such experiential learning personalized for students the study of micropolitics under conditions of poverty, the development of organizational structure, and north-south dependency.
