POLICY TEACHING INSTITUTE

ST. LOUIS MO

“I really enjoyed the concrete, substantive content they shared with us.  It was very engaging.”

 “All the presentations were fantastic; doing the assignments in the session was especially useful.”

 “I loved the interactive process on how to get students involved.  Really practical ideas that I can incorporate quickly.”

 Join us for the second annual Policy Teaching Institute! Whether you are new to teaching Policy and just want a refresher, the Teaching Institute is for you! This is an intensive, immersive, day-long opportunity to gather new ideas and creative tools for getting students excited about policy.

This year’s Institute will feature an opening session by Mimi Abramovitz on “Setting the Stage: A New Era for Teaching Policy.” There will be morning and afternoon sessions devoted to social welfare history, current policies and programs, policy analysis, and advocacy. And our lunchtime roundtables will feature small-group sharing around topics including integrating policy practice into field education, teaching political social work, collaborating with policy practitioners, identifying critical policy content, and applying policy skills in clinical and direct practice settings.
