New Interdisciplinary Graduate Course Inspired by EIUI Research Featured in Dal News

A recent Dal News article highlighted the newly minted, interdisciplinary course: “INFO 6100 – Role of Information in Public Policy and Decision Making.” The course introduces students to the many roles played by information in policy and decision making and the challenges of communicating information at the research-policy interface. Bertrum MacDonald, currently interim dean of the Faculty of Management, is the lead for the course, which was developed collaboratively with other EIUI team members: Peter Wells (Senior Research Fellow with the International Ocean Institute and Adjunct professor, Marine Affairs program), Kevin Quigley (School of Public Administration), Elizabeth De Santo (Adjunct professor with the Marine Affairs Program), and Anatoliy Gruzd (formerly with the School of Information Management). In keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of the research pursued by EIUI, the most recent iteration of the course included students from seven different graduate programs at Dalhousie University.
