Case Studies For Policy Analysis, Decision-Making and Education In Public Processes

Fall 2012 quarter

Linda Moon Stumpff natural resource policy, public administration

This course offers opportunities to select apply and design case studies for use in the public arena.  A broad range of topics to include environmental, social, cultural, financial and managerial issues is encouraged for student research.  Class members will construct and de-construct cases as they participate in active case studies.  Examples are drawn from Evergreen’s Enduring Legacies Project, theKennedySchool, SUNY Cases and other case collections. Students will identify topics for case writing and develop structures for writing cases for application in areas like decision-making, environmental education, conflict-management or leadership issues.  Class activities include reading an estimated 6-8 books, cases and articles, a literature review, a 4-5 page paper on cases, and an initial draft of a case written on a student-selected case topic.
