About the instructor: Amanda Clarke joined the faculty of the School of Public Policy and Administration in July 2014. Her research explores the intersections of public administration, civic engagement and information technologies. She is particularly interested in the implications of social media and related phenomena, such as crowdsourcing, open data and big data, for governments and civil society.
Amanda is a graduate of Carleton University’s College of the Humanities (Bachelor of Humanities) and the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (MA International Affairs). From 2010-2014, Amanda was a Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Scholar, an Oxford University Press Clarendon Scholar, and a Doctoral Fellow of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
Research

In 2014 Amanda completed a DPhil in Information, Communication and the Social Sciences at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford. Focusing on the governments of Canada and the United Kingdom, and two sector-specific case studies (foreign policy and social security), Amanda’s doctoral project explored the models of government-citizen relations reflected in government’s engagement with the social web, and identified reforms required for public sector bureaucracies to capitalize on social media, big data and open data as new instruments of policy development and service delivery.
