Event Description
Urban Health Summer Institute - Policy Analysis: Applied and Practical Approaches to Big and Small Data

This course will provide the landscape of policy analysis in real-world settings using a continuum of data tool approaches. Since policy development and implementation occurs in diverse and fast-paced environments, approaches to studying research and policy questions that keep pace with policymakers will be described. Data approaches from individual case studies to large, publicly available data sets will be reviewed and used. Policy products (e.g., policy briefs, infographics) that resonate with policymakers and constituents will be the key deliverables generated and provide scaffolding for future policy analysis and dissemination.

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify, describe, and execute policy analysis methods
  • Utilize data to form and answer policy questions
  • Create engaging policy products that contribute to policy solutions

Prerequisite knowledge: Prior working knowledge of the three branches of the US government is recommended for this course.

Instructors: Lindsay Shea, DrPH, MS, director, Policy and Analytics Center, assistant professor, A.J. Drexel Autism Institute, Drexel University; Kaitlin Koffer Miller, MPH, policy project manager, Policy and Analytics Center, A.J. Drexel Autism Institute.
