DEVELOPMENT COMMUNICATION IN A BORDERLESS WORLD

  • Nora C. Quebral

Abstract

A curriculum is not a random patchwork of courses. It is the representation of a worldview that the curriculum developers think their intended learners should have. We are here today to dialogue on the development communication worldview. Reciprocity of thought is the very essence of communication, and its practice is central to genuine human development. Development communicators would not be true to a principle of their profession were they to insulate themselves and others from give-and-take with other minds. Development communication would not stay development communication were it cut off from ideas coming from various sources and disciplines –and by which it is nourished.
