I took this course in Fall 2020. Some of our content was applied to the pandemic. This class was lecture based, and there wasn’t usually much written on a projector that students could copy down, so truth be told I feel as if there may be some gaps in my knowledge. We did have reading each night and we had to submit our reading notes and questions, so that helped. I feel as if most days I learned more from the reading outside of class compared to the lecture because I had a hard time keeping up. Our semester project was a policy brief related to the pandemic, shown below. This was the first policy brief I wrote. I had some difficulty limiting my word count and still sufficiently explaining things, particularly in regards to a solution.
