In this module, after a brief introduction, we will start our policy advice by defining the issue and finding sources. Check out our Resource section if you have not yet decided on an issue for your project. Perhaps you would like to use one of our cases and engage in a simulation?
Writing the Position Paper
In this module we will learn how to construct an argument, which will form the backbone of your position paper or policy advice, and think about how to visualise the data supporting the argument. This is the second stage towards your policy advice.
Writing the Policy Advice
In this module you will turn your position paper into a policy advice, but first, we will teach you to apply a SWOT Analysis and Risk Assessment. Do not forget to use the Skills Lab from module 2.
Presentation and Reflection
In this module you will create a presentation to present your policy advice to your target audience, and we will reflect on the course.
