Institute for Innovative Teaching and Learning for Public Service

Today’s students in public affairs programs are tomorrow’s government and nonprofit leaders. By participating in experiential learning opportunities while in graduate school, students learn the critical thinking and data analysis skills they will need to succeed as public sector professionals in the real-world and contribute to effective governance.

Case Study Resources

  • Evans Hallway

    The Hallway is an online library of high-quality, faculty-reviewed teaching cases and resources housed at the University of Washington’s Evans School of Public Policy & Governance. It provides educators who teach public administration, public policy, and related subjects with:

    • A constantly growing database of teaching cases
    • Curriculum materials and teaching notes
    • Videos of select cases taught by experienced teachers
    • Classroom instruction in case teaching and writing
  • Hubert Project

    Hubert Project provides public affairs educators the opportunity to create and share multimedia learning materials including short videos and cases. Intended audiences include faculty and instructors teaching public policy, public administration, and nonprofit management, as well as nonprofit, government, and philanthropic consultants, and other leadership development trainers

  • E-PARCC

    These resources were designed for use in teaching collaboration skills, and were selected through an annual competition sponsored by the Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration (PARCC) at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University.

  • Global Delivery Library

    The Global Delivery Library is a space that connects practitioners to share practical experiences and know-how around delivery challenges and adaptive implementation throughout the project cycle. It deploys a variety of forms, including delivery case studies, videos, multimedia materials, and other publications contributed by practitioners, to capture a range of experiences and inform practitioner decision-making for better development solutions.

  • Model Diplomacy

    Model Diplomacy offers free National Security Council (NSC) and UN Security Council (UNSC) simulations that present both historical and hypothetical scenarios based on real issues, with content informed by Council on Foreign Relations experts. Cases focus on a range of topics that offer a balance of newsworthiness and evergreen educational value, and are accessible for MPA, MPP, and undergraduate students. Model Diplomacy enables students to gain essential knowledge, build important skills, and broaden perspectives surrounding global issues.

Coming Soon!

 

NASPAA is developing a new platform for case studies, simulations and other learning objects.  As we prepare for the new platform, NASPAA is working with our members and other providers to develop new cases and simulations for use in our member programs and more broadly.  If you are interested in creating Case Studies or Simulations and want to learn more about NASPAA's new Institute for Innovative Teaching and Learning for Public Service please contact drudy@naspaa.org, or golas@naspaa.org.

An online Platform connecting students and faculty in public affairs schools around the world with simulations, case studies, data, and service-Learning opportunities—at the lowest possible cost and highest possible quality

Objectives

1. To strengthen the skills of student participants and future leaders across the globe in critical thinking and managing public governance, as well empowering them to engage in public service through simulations, cases and data-driven modes of learning.   

2. To equip faculty with tools and teaching devices such as data-driven, computer- based simulations, and cases, and matchmaking to real-world evaluation projects on the most relevant issues and topics, as part of an effort to enhance experiential learning opportunities in the classroom.

3. To train students in data analysis skills though real-world examples, specifically how to think forensically and employ nontraditional methods.

4. To provide expertise in public service values and working towards the public good to our partner organizations.
