Science Policy Education Modules
In light of the ever-increasing role that science plays in policy decisions, nine educational modules were developed by an ad hoc CSTL committee to highlight the role of science in decision-making for professional school students, with a particular emphasis on scientific and statistical methods of inference. Each module is designed to elucidate competencies in science and technology that are generalizable across contexts. All are free to download.
