Prof. LEWIS's title of the speech is “Public Policy Pedagogy in Global Perspective: Three Pillars and Seven Keys”. This presentation, based on thirty-plus years of teaching, designing, and directing the study of public policy in a number of countries around the world, attempts to identify the foundational ideas and structures of public policy teaching for the 21st century. The "pillars' refer to the institutional aspects and the "keys" to the crucial pedagogical imperatives. The approach is deliberately and tenaciously applied rather than theoretical: it essays a replicable framework for effective public policy programs that can produce competent and qualified policy experts able to work in local, national, and global settings.
