Before you start
Find, compile and create your content.

Know your responsibilities as a course creator regarding copyright of materials you use.

Choose to collaborate with colleagues to create your open materials.

As the course creator, you retain ownership and are responsible for the content and copyright clearances.

Be sure of the copyright restrictions of the content you are including in your space and remember to include acknowledgments.

We would ask that where possible all content is released under a Creative Commons licence, e.g. cc BY-NC-SA 4.0 UK

You can keep your course in draft so that you can develop your open materials with your chosen collaborators, then publish your course when you are ready to share it. We invite you to work alongside us.

Course Creation Process

We currently are operating at full capacity and will not be hiring new Course Creators until early next year, however, you are welcome to make an application. 

Course creators will be expected to complete the following steps to see their course through to launch:



Use the APPLY above to submit your idea.

We will contact you within 2 weeks. 


Submit a full course proposal.

Once your course proposal is approved by the Committee, we will contact you to fill out the Course Description Form.

This form is the basis for what appears on our website in the course listing and descriptions.



If IPD approves your course, you will advance to Step 4.



Course creators sign a Course Provider Agreement with IPD.

IPD will create a Google Drive folder to house your materials.




IPD will market the course.

Course creators are encouraged to market through their channels.



The Institute creates a collaborative environment to think off the beaten path, beyond formal research and methodological approaches. 
Through our actions, the Institute envisions a rejuvenated public diplomacy community, galvanised in pursuit of a more ambitious and enthusiastic engagement in the course of global affairs.

The Institute seeks to bring together scientific community, civil society, policymakers, NGOs, private sector, and researchers investigating topics related to public diplomacy and intercultural communication that influences international relations.
It seeks to gather all perspectives, methods, and approaches, including critical approaches, to encourage dialogue and debate on these important interdisciplinary topics.

Further critical questions abound: 

  • Who researches and who teaches public diplomacy?

  • Who are the researched?

  • Who do we do our public diplomacy work for, and with?

  • Which facts are foundational to our disciplinary identities?

  • Where are the centres of power in public diplomacy discipline, and what are we doing to shift them?

Submissions are welcomed which take up the challenges expressed in these questions, and of any other topic relevant to public diplomacy.
