Using the Atlas for a Crash Course in Fundamentals
… one way of Using the Atlas
Selecting the crucial topics
If you are a distinguished scientist just appointed to a leadership position in a government agency or a community activist just elected to the legislature and now sitting on a committee to review the expenditures of a government department, you may find it useful to quickly learn some of the fundamentals of public management that are taught in MPP and MPA programs.
The topics you would find most relevant would depend on your prior training and professional experience. The Atlas provides a convenient list of MPP/MPA core topics, such as those listed below. You could devote the up to 10 hours on the open access learning resources to master the whole topic to the MPP/MPA level, or you could select the most relevant concepts within the topic, each requiring up to an hour to master the associated open access learning resources.
