The Knight Foundation’s mission is to help people be informed and engaged fully in the life of their communities. They support transformational ideas that promote quality journalism, advance media innovation, engage communities and foster the arts.
In 2014, The Knight Foundation awarded GovLoop with their Prototype Award to create two courses for GovLoop Academy. In nine months, the GovLoop Learning Team conducted 45 interviews in 7 cities to build the “Civic Hackers in Action” and “The Human-Centered Design Mindset” courses.
- Civic Hackers in Action: This course discusses the impact and importance of open data, focusing on the role of civic hackers and community activists. Taking this course will help government with actionable steps with how to get started with open data and how to increase open data’s impact.
- The Human-Centered Design Mindset: This course introduces the concept of Human-Centered Design and its role in developing government’s products, services, and policies that put citizens and their needs at the center of decision-making.
Two additional courses are currently being developed: “Government Data Influencers in Action” and “The Human-Centered Approach.”
American Association for Budget and Program Analysis
The American Association for Budget and Program Analysis (AABPA) helps government managers and analysts, corporate executives, and academic specialists keep up with the latest developments in their fields, establish and maintain contacts with colleagues, represent their interests, and share opportunities.
GovLoop developed two courses with AABPA subject matter experts on the federal budget process and how to create a performance culture.
- Budgeting 101 – Understanding the Federal Budget Process: This course provides an overview of the budget process, terminology and roles of the President and Congress to describe how money gets allocated in and around government.
- Creating a Performance Culture – GPRA at Twenty: This course covers the reporting requirements tied to the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) and describes how to change an agency’s culture to be performance driven.
