Policy Brief Workshop
January 23 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Policy Bridge invites Duke faculty and researchers to participate in a policy brief workshop on January 23rd with writing exercises led by Dean Storelli, the Duke Center for International Development’s writing and communications trainer. Policy Bridge will also be premiering their new brief template that can be easily used for policy brief writing beginners.
The focus of this workshop will be communicating technical expertise through a policy brief to a non-academic, policy audience. It will cover key elements of brief writing, writing style editing, and using the Policy Bridge brief template for an existing research paper. This workshop is open to all faculty and other researchers interested in learning how to better translate research into policy.
Please bring a policy brief idea and laptop with you to prepare to draft one section of your brief during the workshop.
