The recently released 2015 Project Management Curriculum Guidelines & Resources from PMI provides an excellent opportunity to educators in several disciplines to enhance their courses with Project Management (PM) competencies and measureable student learning outcomes. In this webinar you will be introduced to the key components of the curriculum guidelines and several freely available teaching resources that can help you teach PM concepts. Also as a registered participant you will receive access to a comprehensive PM curriculum spreadsheet model that will help you integrate PM knowledge modules, key concepts and transferable skills into your program. The workforce demands many of these competencies and it will give your students an edge if such competencies are embedded into your program.
This webinar will update you on: the current curriculum guidelines; our plans for enhancing the resources available on www.pmiteach.org ; and, the next phase of the curriculum project and course planning.
