RC33 - Studying Political Scientists: An Open & Global Workshop on Methodology
9 December 2022
Management of global virtual events involves specific challenges that necessitate professional help. It was a blessing that we could get IPSA Digital’s excellent assistance in the planning and execution of the workshop. Thanks to IPSA Digital, we had a lively, efficient, and fruitful workshop experience. The workshop was promoted on the IPSA website and social media accounts, and we did not have to worry about the technical registration details. We also had assistance in breakout rooms and slide transitions so that we could concentrate on academic collaboration. Finally, the evaluation meeting was crucial for rethinking, revising and recharging. We also have a high-quality video recording of the event.
