Teaching Public Policy: Tips on engaging your students and inspiring active participation

Sara Rinfret

Professor Sara Rinfret discusses how to get public policy students excited about today’s policy issues and inspire them to actively participate in the ever-changing world of public affairs. Rinfret demonstrates how to get students to look beyond simple pros and cons of popular policy debates to examine the multifaceted dimensions of decision making and the complexities inherent in real-world problem solving. Not every student starts out engaged in Public Policy, but Rinfret shows how to put students in the driver’s seat by fostering their analytical skills and applying them to current policy examples that matter most to them.
