Short Session Description (one line):

Project Management phases and processes give a new way of considering teaching in the aspects of planning, organizing, securing, and managing resources to achieve specific goals in classroom. They can help run interdisciplinary projects which link classrooms in different locations or even countries.


Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

The workshop will bring in a new way of considering teacher's role by presenting how to apply Project Management tools and principles into the teaching/learning processes. As each class group is itself a unique teaching/learning project within the school year time frame, the use of management tools have been the key success in gearing students'effort into a more reflexive learning, yet bringing them to be more autonomous, more responsible of their own progress. This is the result of a research conducted in high school classes in Quebec (Canada).


Furthermore, Project Management phases and processes allow the possibility of conducting many projects of different sizes at the same time while sustaining their quality in terms of evaluation. For example a project involving students from different locations, to an extent, different countries. This possibility will open the classroom to educational realities that would otherwise be unreachable to students with limited financial and pedagogical resources. Thus, students in India could be on the same project with those in Canada about drinking water problems. They can be introduced to new methodology or standards of learning. Tools inspired and adapted from Project Management field will ease project navigation from each group within constraints of time, materials and even humans, leading the joint project to a plus value in specific learning objective in each classroom.

  • Co-Chair
    Thanks for your submission to present at the 2011 Global Education Conference. Your proposal looks promising, but could benefit from some additional language that ties your work to the conference theme of global collaboration. Your proposed session may imply global collaborations and connections, but we need to see more explanation of how your work ties into our mission.  The conference seeks to present ideas, examples and initiatives related to connecting educators and classrooms around the world with an emphasis on promoting global awareness and instilling global competency in students. This is not a general education conference nor a technology conference. Please review your submission and adjust accordingly, so that participants clearly understand how your work fits into the mission of the conference.
