Welcome to the Instructor Handbook for the Opening the Appetite: Data Skills for Global Development Training Programme. The programme has been developed as part of the Development Counts: Data Skills for International Development Careers project - which is all about supporting the next generation of global development professionals to harness the power of data for global and social good. As the quantity and forms of data available globally continues to grow exponentially, development is amongst the areas seeking to harness its potential - as exemplified by the United Nations calling for a ‘Data Revolution’ in development. This training programme has been designed for students on undergraduate social science related programmes with an interest in global development – a group who are often less confident about learning to work with data and perceive these skills are less relevant to their ambitions. This programme aims to tackle the resultant graduate skills deficit by adopting an accessible approach and closely aligning to the reality of working in global development. This instructor handbook has been produced to enable social science lecturers to adopt all or parts of the training programme to support their students to enhance their data skills applied to global development. The programme is ‘ready to go’, and this instructor handbook has been designed for use both by lecturers with a background in quantitative methods and by those who are less familiar with teaching in this area.
