As an instructor, I draw on a number of resources from my colleagues. I regularly assign readings from Paul Cairney's "Politics & Public Policy" site, especially the key policy theories and concepts in 1000 words, and Raul Pacheco-Vega's website has many resources for teaching public policy and administration courses. On this page I've posted some of the course materials I've developed, with the hopes that they are useful to others teaching public policy.
POLICY THEORY POWERPOINT SLIDES
I use presentation slides as visual representations of a policy theory's core ideas, concepts, and logic (rather than as notes). My slide decks are therefore visual in nature, featuring relatively few words. Download PowerPoint slide decks below. Please note: The slides feature fonts that may need to be imported, such as Raleway and Lato. These can be downloaded from Google Fonts.
POLICY ANALYSIS PREZIS
I use recorded mini-lectures (which I call "videocasts") when teaching online. I've found that Prezi presentations are a nice way to create engaging videocasts that incorporate movement and avoid having the viewer stare at the same PowerPoint slide for several minutes. Links to my public Prezi presentations are below, where you can copy and adapt the "Classic" presentations that I have developed and view those created in Prezi "Next".
