Paid Summer Program to Study Public Policy

submitted by shafer@augsburg.edu

Public Policy and International Affairs (PPIA) Junior Summer Institute is an intensive seven-week summer program that focuses on preparing students for careers as policy professionals, public administrators and other leadership roles in public service. The program was started to address the lack of diversity across the spectrum of professional public service, including government, nonprofits, public policy institutions, and international organizations. The purpose of the JSI Fellowship is to prepare students to obtain a Master’s or joint degree, in public policy, public administration, international affairs, or a related field.

Selected participants spend the summer at one of six participating universities (University of Minnesota, Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon, Princeton, University of Washington or University of Michigan) where they take courses, learn from top leaders in the field and build their professional skills. Students must have junior or senior status and be planning to graduate between December 2022 and August 2023. To be competitive for this opportunity, students should have a 3.5 GPA or above. There is no cost to attend and participants receive a stipend.

Contact URGO at urgo@augsburg.edu and reference your interest in PPIA before October 1 to set up a meeting to learn more

September 15 ED Talk: “How I Learned to Love Integrated Course Design and Why you Should, Too”.

submitted by greenj@augsburg.edu

ED Talks are back! Tara Mader and Jennifer Bankers-Fulbright (ICD Workshop Leaders) will introduce you to (or remind you about) Integrated Course Design (ICD). ICD is an all-inclusive pedagogical mind-set that we’ve sometimes described as “advanced professor-ing”. Come see why we’re so passionate about this idea and how you can get paid to learn about and design your course using this system.

CTL will offer ED Talks (based on the concept of TED Talks) before each faculty meeting from 3:10-3:30pm over Zoom. This year’s theme is “The Future of the Professoriate at Augsburg”, and 2021-2022 Ed talks will be framed under this broad theme that speaks to our “new normal” and beyond.
