This paper focuses on the experiences of the author in writing, implementing, and evaluating a course on communication and development. This new course is a central theoretical component in the revised curriculum of the Communication Arts department at Divine Word University, in Madang, Papua New Guinea. It is hoped that this paper may be of some value to others who intend to teach development theories to communication specialists in the developing world.
