How are we teaching project management to postsecondary students? Are we succeeding in bridging the gap between education and industry? If you are currently teaching Project Management at the postsecondary level, we invite you to join this new and exciting community of practice. We want to start the conversation and we are curious to see where it will go. As a community, we can integrate the silos and propel instructors and students alike in the field of project management. We can show industry that our students are prepared for the real world.
As this is the first meeting, we intend to focus our time on the following intended outcomes:
- we want to get to know all the instructors who are interested in this worthwhile industry and life skill
- brainstorm what we hope to accomplish from this community of practice
- decide on how often we want to meet and how we want to structure our meetings; set the date and time for meeting #2
