Hello all, 

I hope the information about revision made sense. Please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns about revision or the exam. The link to the mock exam is in the week 6 update.  Who has some revision tips they think would be good to share? 
A few things I'd like to share: 

To build on the skills and connections you gained through your WildTeam training workshop, we have created a WildHub room (called WildThings), where all the hundreds of WildTeam alumni from around the world can interact and support each other to do better conservation work. For example, you can ask for thoughts about ways to tailor PMWC or share tips to help others manage their work more effectively.
Join by first signing OUT OF WILDHUB, then clicking this link (please do not share this link). You may get a notification saying you are already signed in, but you should now be able to access the room by clicking here.

Here is the group photo from last week’s session :) 

All the best, 
Beth 🐅🐆

Beth Robinson

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, going over the project plan structure got me thinking about the difference between a risk and an incoming dependency. It seems that a risk becomes an incoming dependency when there are no foreseeable options for mitigation? When putting together the project plan you would aim to eliminate as many incoming dependencies as possible?

Hello Gemma, yes, good point, they are very similar. I find I use risks much more than I use dependencies, and sometimes it will be unclear what to record it as. I think recording it as a risk is better if you are unsure because as you say, you can record the mitigation options. And yes, best to eliminate as many incoming dependencies as possible. Sometimes I find thinking in terms of dependencies helps me to view the world from a different angle and spot things I hadn't spotted before.
