Project Management Foundations Course Description

More and more youth are engaged in projects: from long-term in-class projects incorporated into project-based learning experiences; projects for electives, such as yearbook; to out-of-school youth development projects, such as student competitions. Indeed, some youth may spend more time involved in out-of-school projects than in-school projects. These out-of-school endeavors help students develop critical 21st century skills through meaningful collaborative experiences—preparing them with essential life and career skills.

Projects are more effective and efficient when they are well planned, structured, and managed. Project management skills are in high demand for high school graduates. U.S. News & World Report identifies project management as #1 in their list of 7 Key Skills You Need to Get Hired Right Now. In their article, Demand for Project Managers Continues to Grow Globally, ITpreneurs predicts that more than 1.3 million new project management roles will be created by 2020. Therefore, project management skills are also invaluable for handling the demands of everyday adult life.

The Approach

This course uses an inquiry approach, which asks you—as the learner—to combine provided information with your own life experiences to construct understanding. Rather than use a didactic approach, this inquiry-based process allows you to realize how much you already may know about project management, and then guides you towards using the industry-recognized terms and processes for managing projects.

In Modules 1 and 2, you will explore an example project (Fall Formal Dance) and use simulated artifacts to develop an understanding of some terms and concepts of project management. Once you have developed an understanding of the Project Cycle, you will have an opportunity in Modules 3 and 4 to apply your new knowledge to begin developing your own project. Finally, if you choose to participate in Modules 5 and 6, you will dig into project-based learning and develop a project that infuses project management for your students.
