Mini-Documentaries for Public Policy Advocacy

The Introduction to Public Policy course is designed to give students an understanding of the dimensions of public policy studies in the areas of policy analysis and policy advocacy. Using Nokia N95s students were required to participate in a class video blog on public policy issues. In addition to writing a public policy analysis paper, the students were also required to interview a person who has been affected by the public policy issue they were examining. This interview was then used as the basis of a mini-documentary, that was meant to present the policy advocacy element of their presentation.

An example of these mini-documentaries can be seen below:
