Hello,

THIS WEEK

This week’s videos and presentations are here, the topics are: 

  • Documents 

  • Trackers and reports.

A few notes about this week:

Documents: There is one exercise within this presentation where you need to post on the message board again, please add these as comments to this post. 

Trackers and reports: This presentation is mostly exercises. After a short introduction, there are a series of exercises to work through at your own pace, these navigate you through the Project tracker and making a report. If you get stuck at all please get in touch and I will be happy to help. The use of the tracker and creation of reports will not be in the exam. 

There are two options for the trackers and reports presentation

1. Work through it as an individual using presentation 5.2 and the video

2. Work through in groups of 2 or 3 using the classroom version of the presentation (5.2b). I'd recommend setting aside an hour and a half to do this. This way will be more fun and give more opportunities to practice the theory, but I appreciate this might be hard to coordinate. 

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

We've created and uploaded to the shared folder an example of how the PMWC approach can be used with teams focusing on technology based projects, see here

KAHOOTS AND REVISION

I've made the kahoots available outside of the live sessions to use as a learning tool. Here is a document that contains information on how to access these. 

We will chat about revision more next week, but if you want to make a head start here is a document with ideas for revision tools. 

EXAM

The exam will be on the 14th May at 2pm, however, if you can't make this please let me know this week as I am happy to schedule another exam session, but as they take a lot of time to run, I would like to coordinate between you all so I can run the minimum number needed.

I hope you all have good weeks and manage to fit in some outside wildlife regeneration time. Please get in touch if you have any questions or feedback. 

With wild wishes,

Beth

WildLearning Specialist, WildTeam

I'm a WildLearning Specialist with WildTeam, a bit of a odd job title. My main role is to design, deliver and organise both our online and class-based training workshops. One of the best parts of my job is meeting other conservationists and learning about the work that they do. I really enjoy geeking out reading teaching theory and thinking about ways I can more creatively and engagingly deliver learning. Before working for WildTeam I did a PhD in invasive plants and human wildlife interactions. I find it really interesting to learn about the ways people interact with nature, both when nature is being wonderful, but also when is is being a bit annoying!

Hi Beth, and all,

Thank you for the update.

I'm sharing two dependencies for the project I work on:

  • Incoming dependency: availability of data at project-level from landscape restoration projects (interesting to note that I am still unsure about the amount of data we need to collect and the number of landscape restoration projects we need to engage with to ensure that our analysis is relevant).
  • Outgoing dependency: the development of advocacy and communications materials by our project partners depend on our delivery of results on the climate change mitigation benefits of landscape restoration projects.

See you on Thursday!

Hi All, 

Here are my dependencies on a current project:

 

Incoming dependency: Results from previous study client completed which is essential to complete a data gaps/limitations analysis.

Outgoing dependency: Gap analysis will be integreated into a final report that will be used by the private sector. Without this information a specific group of financial actors will not receive information.
