The main premise of "Open Contracting in the Classroom and Beyond" is to target students in their present capacity as citizen monitors, in addition to their future potential as practitioners in their respective fields. University professors from different areas of expertise, ranging from public administration to political science and journalism, were tapped to integrate into their lesson plans the ideas of social accountability and open contracting.
The classroom is an ideal jumping board for guiding students to apply lessons in public disclosure of contracts through both ideological critiquing and actual experiences of engaging government agencies. It is then that students are required to create their own outputs based on what they've learned during the discussions and in the field.
