CPD Mini-Course in Public Diplomacy

Dates: November 9-11, 2015 |USC D.C. Office (701 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W.)
Despite ever-increasing attention to evaluation and analytics of program outcomes in the world of public diplomacy, understanding and connecting assessments to audience awareness and attitudes remains a challenge.
After a highly successful inaugural class in May 2015, the USC Center on Public Diplomacy (CPD) is pleased to present “Effective Public Diplomacy: Evaluation and Impact,” a 3-day workshop designed to give you the working knowledge of common research and analytical tools you need to develop and implement successful public diplomacy programs.
You will:
  • Get a clear explanation of the various kinds of evaluation tools available to you;
  • Learn to combine basic social media analytics with traditional methods of program evaluation;
  • Gain tips and advice on conducting actionable evaluation with limited resources;
  • Become more discerning users of research and data resources.
  • Share experiences and lessons learned to improve your work.
The workshop is comprised of five modules:
Taking the Guesswork Out of Public Diplomacy
Understanding Research Methodology: Foundations of Quantitative Analysis
Using Secondary Data for Evaluation and Impact
Strategic Decision Making in Program Management
Digital Tools and Real-Time Analytics for the PD Practitioner
