Takshashila hosted the second weekend workshop in Bangalore for students from the sixth intake of the Graduate Certificate in Public Policy course between 13th and 15th of December, 2013 . The workshop took place at the foot of the Nandi hills on the outskirts of Bangalore city.
Over three days, students formed teams to solve a simulated public policy challenge in preparation for their final exam. Lecturers at the workshop included Rohit Pradhan, Aruna Urs, Nitin Pai and Pavan Srinath. Over twenty students 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, working professionals and those of various backgrounds.
