Teaching Project Management Effectively: The Direct Path from Class to Work
MetadataShow full item record
Many adult learners approach higher education as a career strategy to increase applied skills as well as achieve a recognizable credential. Through clear and early disclosure of a carefully designed course path that includes individual and team objectives, assignments, and expectations, the instructor can fulfill the obligation to create a learning environment in which students prepare for the workplace. Maintaining awareness of the students’ needs for an efficient, effective and workplace-complementary learning environment also contributes to how the instructor operates in either the online or face-to-face classroom. Students of project management particularly require coursework that demonstrates, as well as defines, the discipline and pathway to work.
