Course Stories Season 3, Episode #2: Mapping the Course: PMG 322: Project Time Management

In this episode from Season Three, we hear from David Corlett, Assistant Teaching Professor in Leadership and Integrative Studies in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts, and Meredith Savvides, Instructional Designer from the Instructional Design and New Media team at EdPlus, about the framework of project management and how it helped him to refresh and rethink the course, PMG 322: Project Time Management.

PMG322 explores how a project manager must plan, create, and manage a complex schedule to see a project to completion – much like a 3D puzzle, timing, and problem-solving are paramount.

David shares how his background in both history and project management helped frame his thinking about how to develop a roadmap for this course to enhance the student experience. He also talks about the technology and design process that helped him improve PMG322, enjoy!
