This course uses the ideas of development, progress, modernity and sustainability to make a distinction between low, intermediate and high technology. Grounded in a history of the world, post-World War II, and the rise of modern technology, the course argues that good design is always contextually relevant. Appropriate technology emerges from this concern with context, and with local suitability. Participants will conceptualize, design and evaluate projects in the fields of alternative energy, agriculture and food production, tool use, and health, with particular emphasis on policy formation and on developing countries.
