How to Build Your ICT4D Skills & Network At the Same Time

I’m often asked which graduate program I would recommend to help people break into ICT4D. People are shocked when I answer, “none”. From what I can tell, a graduate degree isn’t worth the 2 years and $100K.

You’d be better off spending both volunteering with a local NGO in the field, getting hands-on skills and networking directly with digital development practitioners.

So what to do if you want to build your skills, and network with practitioners, without leaving your current job? Take a TechChange course!

Specificly, I hilghly recommend the 16-week TechChange Online Diploma Program in Tech for Monitoring and Evaluation for 3 reasons:

  1. This course will set you apart with high-value skills. Every job has a M&E component, and every organization needs people skilled in M&E Tech.
  2. This course is very interactive. You will network with peers who will have influence on hiring decisions as organizations you want to work for.
  3. This course is fun. Yes, really – the TechChange team works hard to make it easy for you to enjoy learning online when its convenient for you.
