Weekly classes involve a 2 hour lecture and a 1 hour tutorial.
There are a range of journal articles and chapters that are required reading. These will be listed on iLearn and available via Leganto.
The required text for this unit is Maddison, S. & Dennis, R. 2013. An Introduction to Australian Public Policy: Theory and Practice, Port Melbourne: Cambridge University Press.
The Leganto block on the unit’s iLearn website provides a link to the 2009 ebook version, but having a copy of the 2013 book would be best as key readings for the majority of the weeks come from this.
Where to buy the textbook
The remaining set readings are available through the Leganto block on this iLearn site.
Technology used and required
All enrolled students have access to the POIR2070 website via iLearn. iLearn will provide access to lectures (powerpoint presentations for download and recordings through the University's Echo lecture recording facility) as well as readings, links and forum discussions. Regular access to iLearn is required in order to complete the unit.
