A conceptual framework and guidelines for courses on population and development are outlined. Following an introduction, the first of five sections details the scope of a population and development course. A definition of an appropriate framework is provided and the role of population and development issues in such a course are described. Integration of population variables into the course is also considered. Section II, "Form and Content of Courses" provides a rationale and describes the curriculum. Section III, "Orientation of the Courses" is divided into subsections on senior management, middle level staff, educators and researchers, executing agents, and general information. Section IV provides recommendations for course admission requirements, and teaching requirements, and considers external conditions necessary for an effective course. The final section is devoted to the specific curriculum proposed for a course consisting of 825 hours spread over two academic years. Four instructional modules for each year are detailed. A three-page bibliography is included. (LP)
