The Policy Innovation Lab: A starter kit and fellowship program for citizen-centered policy design courses and future Public Interest Technologists
The Policy Innovation Lab and fellowship program prepares master’s students to become public interest technologists by teaching them how to design and build government and non-profit services using human-centered design, agile methodology and delivery for high-impact. This project builds on last year’s success launching our fellowship program and open-access course materials, now available for download on CUNY’s PIT OER Commons site, and on pitcases.org run by Georgetown / Howard / Stanford. In Year two, we expand the program to nine fellows, seven of which will embed in government agencies and nonprofits during a summer fellowship.
