This week’s videos and presentations are here, the topics are: 
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, I'll add a post which you can reply to for these.
Trackers and reports: This presentation comprises a lot of 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.

I wanted to draw your attention to examples of how the PMWC approach can be used with teams focusing on technology-based projects and research projects, see here. 

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.

The exam will be on the 22nd of February at the normal times (10 am GMT and 6 pm GMT). To accommodate those who can't make that day we will put on an extra session at 6 pm GMT on the 23rd of February. Unfortunately only in extenuating circumstances can we put on extra exam sessions as they require a lot of our time to run. You must attend a live session to do the exam. Any questions or concerns about the exam please do get in touch.

A little bit about the exam format, it is multiple-choice, there are 60 questions and you have an hour, or if you have extra time you have 1 hour 15 minutes. It is not like Kahoot where each question has a time limit, you can move backwards and forwards through the questions as you wish. I’ll send out a mock exam next week which will give you a good idea of the format.

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 and Matthew

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!
