Takshashila hosted the first weekend workshop in Bangalore for students from the seventh intake of the Graduate Certificate in Public Policy course between 21sth and 23rd of February, 2014. The workshop took place on the banks of the Sankey tank, in a heritage property once belonging to the Maharaja of Mysore.
Lecturers at the workshop included Amba Salelkar, Raj Cherubal, Nitin Pai, Pavan Srinath, Karthik Shashidhar, and Tulsidas Pai. Over twenty-five students apart from other guests and alumni attended the workshop. The workshop was the first of two contact sessions that form an offline complement to the largely online certificate course offered by the Takshashila Institution. The course runs for a period of 12 weeks and is suited for active students and working professionals and those of various backgrounds.
