I produced the audio-visual presentation below, on the subject of special purpose governments in the United States, not for a class but an outside project. I own the rights to this one, however, and it fits with what I usually talk to state-and-local government course students about anyway. At the same time, this is a favorite topic, one more Americans should know about. Consequently, I thought I needed to feature it on my site! Perhaps I will write a fancier intro for this lecture later, but I prefer to let the vid do the talking--or myself, in the video.
presentations, graduate class (2014)
Featured below are two of several presentations I developed for a graduate seminar in U.S. state and local government that I led at the Tulane School of Continuing Studies in Madison MS in the fall of 2014. The first file, at top, includes a primer on local government and a presentation on state economic development. The second, with a unique "pie chart" design, brings a bit of color and energy to the often tedious subject of state and local budgets. I produced these online via Prezi.
