You have all the good intentions, but it still seems that once course development gets going you abandon all plans and just do it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, and most of the time you have no idea how it ever got done.

Individuals attending this session are involved in one or more of the following areas:
  • Accurately defining a course development project.
  • Planning, tracking, and controlling multiple development projects.
  • Evaluating project status and make effective changes.
The activities of course development can take on a life of their own if they are not properly managed. The Project Manager has a critical role whose responsibility is to plan, organize and control the course development effort. If you are looking for concrete steps to improve your project management skills, this session is for you.

After attending this session, the participants will be able to:
  • Design a course to meet a specific training need.
  • Determine and document the learning required within a course.
  • Formulate learning objectives that are competency-based.
  • Map learning objectives throughout skills practices, learner materials, and support materials.
  • Utilize alternatives to pure lecture format.
  • Differentiate between project management and project work.
  • Define the roles of the project manager, the project sponsor, and other key individuals on a project.
  • Create a Project Charter.
  • Build a project plan including schedules, resource allocations, and a budget.
  • Accurately estimate project activities.
  • Discover the power of the review process to improve future performance.
