Learning teams of approximately five people each will be formed at the beginning of this session and will work together throughout the session.  This will enable the participants to enhance their learning from each other, to experience the development of a strong team, and to develop a model of the culture that they will want to create and execute their projects.

Foundations of Project Management I

  • Friday, July 6 and 7, 8:30-5:00
  • Location:  Moved to Burnaby campus, Thesis Defence Room

In this workshop, you will learn the best practices of successful project managers, from inspiring a project team to meeting those crucial deadlines. These are the skills needed to take a project from beginning to end successfully. You will be given time to practice these skills in a supportive learning environment before transferring them to the workplace.

All grad students and postdocs can attend any Mitacs session, held anywhere in BC. Check the Mitacs website for additional offerings. 

As always, Mitacs sessions are at no cost but space is limited and seats go fast so sign up now!  (The workshops are free if you show up, but you are charged $50 if you do not show up. See their registration information.)
