MIT Course - Disseminating Innovations for the Common Good

An example of the MIT courses is linked below - there are a number of features of this course that make it worth studying including emphasis on student participation, applying knowledge to real-world problems and so on. I have introduced a policy design feature into some of my behavioural economics teaching whereby undergraduate students are asked to define an important economic problem, examine the underlying behavioural principles and develop a behaviourally informed policy response. I havent seen the solutions yet but the general process is an interesting one.
