Week 5 - Project management training
It is week 5! This is the last of the theory of PMWC, next week will be revision week.
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, 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 group 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. Most people go for option 1.
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.
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.
The exam will be on Monday the 29th June at the normal times (8.30 am BST / 5 pm ACST and 5 pm BST/ 10 am MDT). To accommodate those who can't make those dates we will put on an extra session at 5 pm BST / 10 am MDT Tuesday the 30th June. 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.
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,
