Resources on case studies, case competitions, and Atlas case news stories
As Andrew Graham (reference below) notes:
“Case studies can be a very powerful way to learn. They combine problems of public management with real world – or approximately real world – situations. Experience in the School of Policy Studies, but also in working with the Canadian Police College, has confirmed how useful they can be. Over the past several, I have developed a number of case studies that have generally proven to be good learning opportunities for both full time and part time students. These have been used both in group work – with some spectacular presentations in class – and as individual assignments.”
Cases have long been used as teaching materials in some MPP/MPA programs and they are available for a fee (such as $3.95 per case per student for the HKS cases). The table below has links to the collections of the Harvard Kennedy School and the Evans School (Electronic Hallway).
The table also provides links to Atlas news stories, which provide case-style coverage of a breaking news stories of relevance to public policy and public management.
