The Center for Global Communication Studies is pleased to announce a call for applications for a course on Teaching ICT Policy Skills, to be held May 14-18 at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary.

Applications are welcome from faculty members at accredited higher education institutions interested in enhancing the curricula of their home institutions in public policy and law by developing interest and teaching capacity in ICT policy skills. Successful applicants who are citizens of the former Soviet Union, South-Eastern Europe, and Mongolia will receive full funding for their participation. A good command of written and spoken English is required.

“Teaching ICT Policy Skills” provides participants with an opportunity to enhance the curricula of their home institutions in public policy and law by developing interest and teaching capacity in ICT policy skills. The session aims to promote a critical, analytic, and innovative study of the complex and often conflicting public policy demands of the ICT sector, and to introduce participants to the basic principles underpinning international telecommunications laws.

The session intends to approach the topic from an interdisciplinary, comparative perspective; to build analytic skills to understand and critically engage with current policy debates about ICT; to survey how some of the newest industries and technologies function and are regulated; and to present an overview of policy developments and regulations throughout the region. It will also provide participants with practical skills in curriculum design, development and implementation.

More information on the program, and the online application, is available athttp://web.ceu.hu/crc/crc_visit_upc.htmlApplications are due March 11.

This program is being run in conjunction with CGCS’s ICT Policy and Training Initiative (IPTI) in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
