WSDS 2020 and 2021 - Participant evaluations

Two editions of Warsaw Science Diplomacy School (WSDS) in an entirely virtual format each comprised a decisive success for the InsSciDE project and our international team of co-organizing partners, the European Academy of Diplomacy (EAD), UiT The Arctic University of Norway, Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS), Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI), Symlog, and UNESCO.

The flagship program embodied InsSciDE founding principles of historical connections and interdisciplinary dialogue, while fostering an intimate and constructive environment in a Zoom-intensive week of debate, analysis and fun.

Participant Evaluation of InsSciDE Event:
Warsaw Science Diplomacy Schools,
2020-21

Summary:
The Warsaw Science Diplomacy School (WSDS) was conducted online for one week in June 2020 and again in 2021. This deliverable report is one in a series evaluating public events organized by H2020 InsSciDE, and integrates student evaluations of WSDS 2020 and WSDS 2021 as well as information on course content to present a holistic portrait of the school . Through the analysis of anonymous participant survey data, student reflections shared in plenary, and social media posts, we report continued high levels of satisfaction with the school and its conduct (in online format, necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic). In particular, participants appreciated the interdisciplinary nature of both teaching content and team dynamics. The program schedule, evaluation survey questions, critique of methodology, and list of faculty/organizers are appended.
