Change Cards

What is this?
Change cards are used to push your thinking about potential or existing policies. Each card has a question like, “What would this policy look like if we had unlimited funds?” or “What would this policy look like if students evaluated the results?”


When should I use this?
Change cards are useful when you and your team want to get beyond best practices and think about how policy aims can be achieved in new ways. You can use change cards with your team members or the target population you aim to help with your policy.

Low-cost tools like change cards can stimulate new ideas by either applying constraints or prompting creative thinking. The answers to the change card questions won’t directly benefit your policy design, but that’s not the goal. The goal is to allow you to look at your challenge in new ways.
