Tous les spécialités
The year-long fellowship program engages participants through a blended learning approach. Fellows are required to attend a weeklong training workshop, complete instructional curricula online, and submit assignments throughout the fellowship.
The program has three components:
Online Coursework: Throughout the yearlong fellowship, participants will be required to attend short online lectures and complete associated assignments to supplement the in-person training. Fellows are expected to join one orientation webinar prior to the summer institute, as well as attend post-institute online lectures throughout the year.
Summer Institute: Participants will attend a weeklong policy and communication workshop focused on the role of research in the policy process and techniques for effective communication of research findings to decisionmakers. At the summer institute, participants will interact with PRB staff and local experts active in policy research and communication. During the training, participants are asked to work with their own research data to identify the policy relevance of their findings; Fellows will learn how to draw implications from those findings and communicate them effectively to policy audiences through a variety of platforms. The date of the summer institute will be announced in March 2019.
Policy Communication Assignments: During the 2019-2020 academic year, Fellows will apply the skills learned at the workshop to prepare written assignments and an oral presentation for policy audiences, based on their dissertation research. Throughout the assignments, Fellows will receive individual feedback from policy communication experts.
The program will cover travel, lodging, and per diem expenses for each Fellow to attend the workshop.
