  • Food insecurity among public administration graduate students
    • Authors: Daniel J Mallinson
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      Food insecurity is a pressing concern for students in higher education. Much of the conversation surrounding this problem, however, focuses on undergraduate students. But some research finds the problem extends to graduate students. This study asks the question of how food insecurity may be affecting graduate students in public administration. A pilot study in a Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration-accredited program reveals that almost one quarter of respondents are food insecure. This includes one in five students who are completing their degrees online. The survey also found an important divergence between the types of programs food-insecure students are willing to use and those to which food-secure students are willing to contribute. Given the effects of food insecurity on academic success and degree completion, this study has important implications for public administration programs.

  • Reflections on public administration education with a case of Bangladesh
    • Authors: Muhammad Azizuddin, Akram Hossain
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      The paper aims to review public administration education in the higher education institutions in Bangladesh, and their role in ensuring modern public services. Most universities in the country offer public administration degrees; however, minimal contributions to nationbuilding have been observed. The study asks: what are the pitfalls behind this' How to address the limitations' This is a qualitative study with gleaned data, using inductive content analysis to investigate the phenomenon with three case universities indicating the link between curriculum and learning delivery at the universities in Bangladesh. The research finds that poor development-oriented public administration education has little correlation to national development. The education system is traditional, where typical cultural features are nonchalance and indifference towards domestic demands. The discipline cannot create a distinctive identity and position in academia, which has consequences for the advancement of the administrative system in a developing country like Bangladesh. A research-informed curriculum with innovative pedagogical approach might be an alternative. The paper enlightens both academics and practitioners, as literature on public administration education in Bangladesh has been scarce. It calls for higher education institutions to reassess public administration education, teaching methods and research for national development.

  • On the re-institutionalization and diversification of Public
           Administration education in Central and Eastern Europe: A case study of
           post-communist Romania
    • Authors: Liviu Andreescu, Marian Zulean, David Diaconu
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      The article provides a complementary view to those accounts of the growth of public administration education in post-communist Central and Eastern Europe that (a) explain its development primarily as a reflection of changes in administrative cultures while (b) emphasizing the ongoing process of curricular diversification. Rather, the article shifts the focus on the internal dynamics of higher education. It shows that the development of Romanian public administration education can be attributed, to a considerable extent, to unique opportunities arising in a period of post-communist re-institutionalization, of which enterprising academics ably took advantage. It further argues that, curricular variety notwithstanding, public administration departments in this country may be growing more alike in other respects. In so doing, the article contributes to an expansion of the traditional narrative of the growth of public administration education in post-communist Europe.

  • Identifying and developing desirable soft skills for public service
    • Authors: Chad Kinsella, Brandon Waite
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      One of the key goals of any academic program is to ensure that skills taught in the classroom apply to post-graduate employment. Failure to do so can impact an academic department’s recruitment and retention efforts, strain relations with alumni and damage the institution’s reputation. Using interviews conducted during a faculty externship at a high-performing municipal government, this paper identifies soft skills employers expect students to have when entering the public-sector workforce, and offers suggestions for how to best prepare students for public-sector employment in light of these findings.

  • Film in Public Administration Classrooms: Developing Responsible
           Administrators in the Information Age
    • Authors: Del M.N. Bharath
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      Future public administrators are predominantly entering the field as practitioners, and therefore, classroom work should have relevance in the field. Public administration educators need to find engaging ways to connect theory to practice, as well as creating culturally competent, ethical decision-makers, capable of sifting through information to make decisions for the public good. Film – specifically television and movies – as a pedagogical tool, can accomplish these goals. While fiction and storytelling have been common tools in education (literature and fictional case studies), film is increasingly used by educators. There is a multitude of outcomes for using film in the public administrators classroom. This research provides a comprehensive analysis of film as a pedagogical tool, and links outcomes to the development of three types of public administrators: skilled, responsible, and responsible in the information age.

  • Transforming plans into community impact: Strategic planning as
           
    • Authors: David Mitchell, Gregg Buckingham
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      Service-learning is highly praised as a successful pedagogical tool for students’ learning. Benefits are attributed to students, the university, and the community. However, the literature also cautions that the benefits of service-learning are largely assumed without empirical testing, warranting a closer review of this pedagogical method. The purpose of this research is to investigate how previously identified service-learning best practices affect the level of strategic impact for community partners. The study utilizes the rich and varied 20-year history of a strategic planning service-learning course at the University of Central Florida School of Public Administration to test these relationships, producing evidence to demonstrate that group team structure and the designation of a service-learning director do indeed improve partner outcomes while longer semesters and greater organizational capacity may not. Ultimately, the study endorses a programmatic approach to service-learning that transcends a particular assignment or course, requiring significant attention, investment, and evaluation to ensure positive community impact—especially in cases where broader university service-learning resources are lacking.

  • Certain aspects of the development of foreign language professional
           competencies of public administration students
    • Authors: Guliya K Nurlybaeva
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      For the full implementation of strategic goals of public administration, as well as a worthy representation of the interests of the state at the international level, civil servants must have high foreign-language professional competencies.Practical issues of educational and training programs in the field of development of these competencies are carefully studied by the author. The current state of the level of language training of future civil service students (undergraduates, graduates and postgraduates) at the Institute for Social Sciences at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration is analyzed. The analysis includes the definition and formulation of tasks, goals, curriculum technologies, qualification requirements of future civil servants, ways of improving the quality of their knowledge of foreign languages and improving the methodological support of foreign-language teaching, and the creation of textbooks and teaching aids to solve the above-mentioned problem, etc. The research methods include theoretical research, analytical research methods, methodology of empirical research and methods of comparative research.The conclusions are based on the results of the analysis. Ways of improving programs for better development of civil servants’ foreign-language professional competencies are outlined. Some recommendations for teachers and education managers are presented.

  • Teaching diversity, cultural competency, and globalization to American
           public affairs students: Integrating comparative approaches to public
           administration and policy
    • Authors: Daniel Baracskay
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      Diversity, cultural competency, and global awareness are three broad and mutually reinforcing conceptual themes in the literature of American public affairs education that are rarely implicitly interconnected. A primary challenge has concerned how to teach these themes, either separately or in unison, when designing courses and curricula to satisfy professional standards. This article first explores how broad conceptual themes can be practically transformed into course learning objectives on which assignments may be based. Second, this article explores how comparative public administration and policy may be utilized as a venue for drawing analytical connections across the three themes to promote higher levels of critical thinking. Although comparative approaches have historically been grounded in research-focused studies, pedagogical development of the field holds significant promise in training public administrators to better understand the intricacies of different cultures, nations, governments, and policies as a facet of learning and job performance. This article illustrates several assignment examples of how comparative analysis may be integrated as a pedagogical strategy in teaching American public affairs students the complexities of public service in the diverse and multicultural world of the 21st century.

  • Case example of the use of Six Sigma and Kaizen projects in policing
           services
    • Authors: Mohammed Saleh Alosani
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      This paper aims to elaborate on the use of Six Sigma and Kaizen in policing services. Two case examples are discussed, followed by a review of the key implications obtained from the projects. In optimising the quality of policing services to the community, the police agencies in the UAE are faced with numerous challenges. This paper aims to provide further evidence of the use and applicability of Six Sigma and Kaizen in the policing field and to propose the direction for future studies. Based on the study results, it is proposed that the methodologies from Six Sigma and Kaizen are adopted in policing services to achieve an improvement in all aspects of their environment, including the process of service delivery, service effectiveness and efficiency, and the reduction of operational costs. This study is considered one of the few that have reported the use and benefits of these methods in policing services. Specifically, the findings have provided implications to the general arguments on the effectiveness of Six Sigma and Kaizen and their applicability in police agencies under the public sector, leading to further contributions which fill the research gap. Moreover, this study offers significant value for practitioners and managers in the organisations under the public sector to exert continuous improvement in the provision of services or products and organisational performance.

  • Master of Public Administration and Master of Public Policy degrees:
           Differences and similarities in the curricula and course contents
    • Authors: Göktuğ Morçöl, Michele Tantardini, Adam Williams, Derek R Slagle
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      The historical origins of public administration and public policy analysis suggest that Master of Public Administration and Master of Public Policy programs should have different focuses in their curricula: the former on management skills and the latter on analytical skills. To investigate whether and to what extent the two types of programs are different and whether the accreditation standards of the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration have a homogenizing effect on them, we investigated the titles and descriptions of the courses in their core curricula. The results show some differences between Master of Public Administration and Master of Public Policy programs, but no clear distinction. Analytical skills are required by both Master of Public Administration and Master of Public Policy programs. Master of Public Policy programs distinguish themselves from Master of Public Administration programs primarily by requiring economics and economic analysis courses. Higher percentages of Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration-accredited programs require organization studies, human resource management, and public budgeting courses.

  • Decolonisation in the field of public administration: The responsiveness
           of the scholarship of teaching and learning
    • Authors: Noluthando S Matsiliza
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      This article sets out to explore and analyse the repositioning of the scholarship of teaching and learning in the study of governance. The proponent of this study argues that the scholarship of teaching and learning in public administration and management must respond to decolonisation within the context of its disciplinary culture and practices. Decolonisation in South Africa followed in the wake of student demands for free and equal education and the call for the rejection of the hegemony of Western, European and apartheid knowledge production. As part of responsiveness, this article argues that the scholarship of teaching and learning in the field of public administration and management must be repositioned by recognising the existence of new narratives in the pedagogy of governance that upholds African agency, culture, societal values and practices without compromising quality. Findings from this study suggest that the scholarship of teaching and learning must be framed by local knowledge and must create a drive for a restoration of epistemic agenda in African universities that teach governance studies.

  • Is public administration struggling in higher education' Evidence from
           the united states scenario
    • Authors: Alessandro Braga
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      This article aims to discuss the health of the public administration discipline in the US higher education system. In particular, it debates two possible alternatives: decline or reposition. The paper analyzes the academic offers of political science, public policy, and public administration programs at both undergraduate and graduate levels. The Results highlight that the public administration discipline is currently at a crucial point. The core attention within both governments and higher education is more focused on politics and policies than on management. Accordingly, this scenario has two main effects. First, it creates an imbalance between the political discourse, the formulation/execution of public policies, and the managing of effective public sector organizations. Second, it might lead the discipline of public administration into a decline. Nevertheless, public administration can find a reposition within social sciences by developing more openness and a process of cross-contamination with other humanistic disciplines.

  • Organisational learning and change in a public sector context
    • Authors: Ian C Elliott
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      It is broadly accepted that learning is important in supporting the delivery of change. Furthermore, during times of public sector budget cuts there is a growing interest in innovation and change. However, it is also generally accepted that austere times typically lead to a reduction in training and development budgets – particularly within the public sector.This paper explores the extent to which the assumed link between learning and change is contested during austerity. Fifty-one public sector managers from Wales and Scotland participated in the study, over a period of 13 months, from a wide range of public sector organisations across two devolved parts of the UK. The research explored issues surrounding motivations for learning, expectations of outcomes and perceptions around the drivers of change.It is found that public sector budget cuts are having a direct impact on learning and development opportunities across the UK public sector. Whilst budget cuts may lead to change, this is likely to be piecemeal rather than strategic. In conclusion, this research supports the view that austerity is a barrier to meaningful change in the public sector and not a driver.

  • Are group assignments effective pedagogy or a waste of time' A review
           of the literature and implications for practice
    • Authors: Michael Thom
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      Group assignments are a near-universal feature of classrooms around the world. They are broadly viewed as more effective than passive forms of learning and are assumed to position students for success in fields that demand high levels of interpersonal communication, like public affairs. But does research support that view' This article examines the literature on group assignments. It illustrates that most studies on group assignments suffer from weak research designs, leaving little empirical basis for their presumed benefits. The article offers suggestions for improving the design and implementation of group assignments, but also encourages instructors to reconsider their use.

  • Scholars’ influence on their institutions: Reputation, prestige, and
           rankings
    • Authors: Adam Williams, Derek R Slagle, Darrin Wilson
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      This research article examines the relationship of individual scholars to overall research production and develops new ranking schema upon the absence of top individual scholarship as demonstrations of individual scholarship relative to total rankings. The study creates a ranking system focused on the impact of individual scholars in public administration research. The contributions of this ranking system are to provide a different view than traditional ranking schemas at the institutional and departmental level. In addition, questions about the significance of scholarship within the discipline and for academic institutions outlines the reinforcing nature of systems aimed at identifying a “best” within public administration. Comparisons of findings are discussed in contrast to reputational and prestige ranking systems. Subsequent discussion is focused on the importance of individual scholarship to the institutional rankings through evaluating individual movement between institutions.

  • Policy formulation redesigned: A new understanding of policy design and
           its implications for instruction
    • Authors: Arnošt Veselý
      Abstract: Teaching Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      Despite the fact that our knowledge on how policies are designed has substantially improved during the last two decades, prescriptive literature on policy formulation remains largely disconnected from these new findings. The article examines five major assumptions upon which policy formulation is still predominantly based: (a) there is one way policies are and should be formulated; (b) effective formulation of policies is more about the right application of methods than of the substance of a policy domain; (c) policy formulation is about choosing from mutually exclusive alternatives; (d) problem definition has priority over problem solution; (e) there is a clear distinction between policy formulation, adoption and implementation. This article shows why these assumptions are outdated and that they lead to many practical problems in the teaching of policy analysis. It is argued that policy formulation guidelines and training in policy formulation should be based on current policy design scholarship that stresses, for instance, the importance of local knowledge, deep understanding of actors’ perspectives and the need to formulate policy packages. The article concludes with preliminary recommendations on how to move forward, illustrated with concrete examples from practice.
