国際公共政策実践研究(Writing Public Policy Cases for SDGs)

To protect ourselves from the new coronavirus, all teaching and learning activities under this course will be conducted online via Zoom until the announcement back to normal is made during the semester. Students are urged to take this course at home. Please check the class information on UTAS and ITC-LMS regularly for updates.
The course aims to discuss the public policy-related challenges and opportunities to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In this course, participants will be introduced to problem solving in public policy by using “teaching cases” (or simply “cases”). A teaching case is a narrative which provides information on a real-world situation where people, such as policy makers or business executives, are supposed to make a decision or solve a problem. A well-known approach is one developed by Harvard Business School (often called “the case method”) mostly for corporate decision making as compared to ours for public policy decision making or problem solving.

The cases will cover topics related to SDGs such as water, sanitation, transportation, spillover effect of infrastructure, fin-tech, micro-financing, philanthropy and others. Students can learn how to read, analyze, discuss, and write about cases and then to use a case for guiding others for decision making practice.

Students are required to do analytical work in a small team with a given narrative by interpreting the relationships among incidents, analyzing interactions between stakeholders, identifying possible options, evaluating choices and their outcomes, and comparing alternatives. Analytical work with a teaching case also helps students understand the relevance and importance of abstract concepts and theory in practice.

Towards the end of the course, participants are required to write a case and thereafter have opportunities to discuss cases which other students present so that they would develop critical thinking in analyzing problems and making decisions on practical issues.

授業の方法
The interactive sessions will apply participant-centered learning methods. During the course, participants will learn how to read, analyze, discuss, and write about cases and then to use a case for guiding others for decision making practice. Towards the end of the course, participants will be asked to do a group exercise (up to 3 persons in a group) and write a case on a public policy story relating to any one of the SDGs, and actively join debates on the cases which other groups will present.
成績評価方法
The course grade will be based on: Class attendance 20% Participation in discussion and debate 30% Final presentation and group report (about 10 pages or 6,000 words) 50%
