NEW! ICPA Forum Partnership:  Workshop and Annual Award at #NASPAA2018

Incorporating Comparative Perspectives in Public Affairs Teaching: Syllabi, Cases, Simulations and More 

The International Comparative Policy Analysis (ICPA) Forum affiliated with the Journal of Comparative Policy Analysis (JCPA) and NASPAA will kick-off a new partnership agreement which includes a joint screening and recognition of the best comparative syllabus or major assignments (simulations, experiential learning, cases, projects, etc). The workshop and the annual award seek to highlight comparative approaches to teaching and learning that are effective and engaging. In particular, we are interested in comparative approaches to teaching about the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and strategies for advancing SDG 16, although this need not be the focus of the course or project. In addition to a $500 award, winning material may be considered for the JCPA and/or Journal of Public Affairs Education (JPAE). 

The session will take place at the NASPAA conference Wednesday, Oct. 10, 10 am - 4 pm and will be convened by Nadia Rubaii, Binghamton University.
