George V. Voinovich Public Innovation Challenge 4 th ANNUAL
WELCOME TO TPAC! The Board of the Section on Public Administration Education (SPAE) of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA), and the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA) thank you for joining us for the 2020 Annual Teaching Public Administration Conference (TPAC)! We are delighted this year to hold the conference, ‘co-locating’ with NASPAA. Collaborating with NASPAA during recent months has been an exciting endeavor as we took on the challenges of the virtual space, which became a necessity during the pandemic. This has not reduced our members’ enthusiasm, and while welcoming you, I truly believe that this will be a memorable experience. The purpose of the conference and the mission of SPAE are joined toward “providing a forum for information exchange among members in regard to innovative curricula and pedagogical approaches.” TPAC began in 1978 and we believe that it continues to fulfill an essential role by ensuring that teaching receives the recognition, attention, and nurturing that is necessary toward empowering the disciplines and institutions that comprise the public sector. This year, in association with NASPAA, TPAC continues the tradition started 43 years ago, of providing several interactive forums for dedicated faculty to share strategies and discuss ideas for offering our students excellent learning experiences while developing the competencies needed to achieve meaningful work, as they graduate into careers in public service. TPAC 2020 includes developmental workshops on Wednesday, first, on case study use in the public administration classroom; and then on work-life balance, produced for the benefit of doctoral students. On Thursday and Friday there will be a series of panel sessions by SPAE members focusing, for example, on participation in the civic square and civic-centered education, ethics, the humanities as a teaching resource, skills and gaps in public affairs education, undergraduate and graduate education, and diversifying faculty, among others. Do enjoy the conference and the wonderful opportunity that it provides for us to reconnect and support each other as educators. Sincerely,

Cyberinfrastructure Workshop: Exploring and Analyzing Large Administrative Data Wed. 11:00am – 1:00pm EDT This session is full. Join the waitlist in Pathable.

This workshop will focus on how to standardize and analyze the administrative data using cyberinfrastructure and data science tools. We will exemplify with 311 calls, which are local non-emergency service requests. We especially invite senior Ph.D. students and junior faculty in general, and those from minority-serving programs in particular. We will cap the workshop to fifteen attendees. Python or R skills are desirable, but not a must. The workshop is facilitated through NSF Grant # 1924154. NOTE: The NASPAA conference registration costs can be reimbursed for participants through the NSF grant (up to the early bird rate of $99.00).
