Do you often juggle several projects, trying to keep each one focused and on track? Project management provides valuable training that will help you organize, manage, and successfully complete projects. This online course shows you how to implement internationally recognized project management principles in a history context.
Whether your work involves exhibitions, programs, strategic planning, fundraising, special events, collections work, or the many other tasks staff at history organizations address every day, you will come away from this course with new tools for effectively managing projects.
This recently redesigned course consists of four modules that include assignments, quizzes, and other activities. While the first week’s module is guided, the rest are self-paced. The class meets each week for a live chat with the instructor.
Participants should expect to spend approximately seven hours per week on the course. Each student chooses a real-life project to work on during the course.
Project management is valuable training for staff at all levels and an investment in your institution’s ability to successfully complete projects and serve your community.
The course is taught by Steven Hoskins, Ph.D., author of AASLH’s Technical Leaflet (#260) “Calculating Risk: A Guide to Project Management for History Professionals.”
