National HIA Meeting 2012 - Teaching HIA in Universities

National HIA Meeting 2012 - Teaching HIA in Universities


Participants in this panel session will explore teaching HIA methods at the graduate level from the faculty and student perspectives, and offer methods for engaging learners and community partners. Faculty who teach the four existing courses will provide an overview of their course curricula, techniques for selecting an appropriate HIA for experiential learning and methods for developing relationships with local decision-makers. Students who took two of these courses will offer feedback on successes and challenges, and whether or not the course objectives met their individual learning goals. This session will be valuable for HIA professionals interested in exploring how to build capacity in the field, for faculty considering developing a graduate-level HIA course at their school and for students considering taking such a course.

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for emerging challenges, it makes government more effective and better able to serve the public interest. In the coming months, President Joe Biden and the 117th Congress will tackle a number of environmental, health, public safety, and fiscal and economic issues—nearly all of them complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic. To help solve specific, systemic problems in a nonpartisan fashion, Pew has compiled a series of briefings and recommendations based on our research, technical assistance, and advocacy work across America.


States of Innovation

Data-driven state policy innovations across America

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for difficult challenges. When states serve their traditional role as laboratories of innovation, they increase the American people’s confidence that the government they choose—no matter the size—can be effective, responsive, and in the public interest.
