My @UNC undergrads have crafted amazing policy briefs for years. This NEW guide covers everything: what's a policy brief; why assign this project; picking a topic; grading briefs & more. #Pedagogy #PoliSciTwitter #PolicyBrief #PublicPolicy @UNCPublicPolicy… Screenshot of Table of Contents of linked PDF Table of ConteScreenshot of Table of Contents on Linked PDF (Con't) Assign
I made the guide to help my students and TAs. I also know there are a lot of profs looking for "tried and true" assignments that can be easily integrated into their class. Policy briefs are used in different disciplines: poli sci, soci, criminology, public health, economics, etc.
Short, advocacy oriented policy briefs are ubiquitous in the policy world. They make great assignmente bc they prod students to make critical connections & develop practical skills replicating a "real world" task. They also empower students to advocate for things they care about. Policy briefs help to “set the policy agenda.” By agendaThe guide describes that there are different types of briefsWhy do I assign this project? The objectives for this projec

@WVUPolicyRes - a 🧵

If you follow me, you'll know that earlier this year I came home to #WestVirginia and @WestVirginiaU @WVUEberly to start the Institute for Policy Research and Public Affairs. Our Twitter account is above, and we'd appreciate a follow.
Our account will cover research, data, and issues important to the state of #WestVirginia and the broader region of #Appalachia, but will touch on issues important nationally in areas like ours.
We also aim to signal-boost research by scholars working in #publicpolicy, #publicadministration, and #stateandlocal #socialscience. If you have work that you think is relevant to our aims, please dm us and we'll be happy to #Tweet you and your work.

Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳
Also me & @IsabelaHissa in front of Sao Paulo’s #MASP (Modern Art Museum) & me and my mom in #Rio! #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Image
I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

Will we EVER learn about #PublicHealth?
3rd wave “expert” committee is nearly-ALL #Pediatricians (to keep Devi Shetty’s non-#evidence-based assertion on #children will be entirely affected), #AllMale #Manel, nearly-all #clinicians headed by #PrivateSector #Cardiologist
I request this committee members:
- Please QUESTION Devi Shetty’s credentials to lead this
- Please hold to account #Manel #AllMale membership
- Please include #RuralHealth #CommunityHealth #PublicHealth
- Expertise is NOT only CLINICAL; also social; include grounded voices
Unfortunately no time & bandwidth; but putting this out there
We need:
- campaign for a DIVERSE expert committee including #Citizen #CommunityEngagement #Dalit #Adivasi voices
- Devi Shetty’s position as Chair is NOT tenable; appoint a #PublicHealth expert in his place

Colorado can reduce electricity cumulatively save $1.8 billion by 2040. At the same time, it can grow the electricity job market by 70,000 and reduce GHG emissions by 75% from 2005 levels.

@holycrossenergy @IREAcoop @DrChrisClack @achoukulkar
It can do all this by:
1) Coordinating transmission planning across Colorado;

2) Designing transmission tariffs and access spread across Colorado;

#transmission Transmission topology between utilities and cooperatives acr
3) Ensuring all utilities and cooperatives join the same Energy Imbalance Market (best for whole US is when all CO joins the WEIM);

4) Deploy wind, solar, and storage throughout Colorado;

5) Sell the excess Coloradan wind and solar to other states in the West.

Hey #bced with @Rob_Fleming citing class averages as evidence that there isn't as big an issue as teachers say, we need to understand some enrolment management averages and why the stat seems so different than the experience of teachers. /1

@tracysherlock @jodyvance @steeletalk
BC definitely has some small classes. This is most often found in small towns. But also specialized programs like those for kids who are at risk of not graduating or who have high needs. /2
But let's think about this in theory. The class size average is meaningless in setting up public policy around distancing. Here's why:

1. I can't move kids from a Surrey high school class of 30 to the school in New Denver that has 9 kids per class.

A thread on some quotes from @gautambhatia88’s “The transformative constitution “In equality jurisprudence, the approach of focusing on the disproportionately exclusionary impact if politics rather than their formal character or motive is known as disparate impact”
“It is based on the premise that inequality and discrimination result not (only) from individual hostile acts, but from structures and institutions.” @gautambhatia88 Only in brackets important & added by me.
An test for entry may be “neutral” but yet exclude by aligning with exclusionary institutions; if an physical entrance test for firefighter includes activities not necessary for fulfilling duties and unintentionally poses #gender-barriers, deserves to be struck down. #NoteToSelf

I listen to ~90 #Podcasts on a (semi) regular basis. Let me give you a rundown of ALL of them and why you should listen to some amazing #FOAMed, especially for all the new #EmergencyMedicine interns. #FOAMed #MedEd #medtwitter
First of all, you need a good podcast app. I absolutely love Downcast. Great app, gives you more control over playback, downloading, and allows you to categorize your podcasts into playlists (picture 2). This is where you get to customize your #FOAMed experience! #medtwitter
In no particular order,

- Anesthesia and Critical Care Reviews and Commentary (ACCRAC). Great insight into Crit Care from an anesthesia perspective. Coming from EM, this is great to listen to- much different from my day-to-day! #FOAMed #FOAMcc #CriticalCare
