Cultural Heritage Project Management 2

Course Description: 

The course is a direct continuation of the "Cultural Heritage Project Management 1" in the Fall Term. The main aim of the course designed for two terms is to introduce the basic elements of managing cultural heritage projects in theory and practice. The course is designed by the concept of “learning by doing”: students are expected to take part in a heritage project developed by the Cultural Heritage Studies Program. The team constituted by the participants of the course initiated and planned a project in the first term. They will develop this project in the second term, realize it, and finish with the monitoring and closing phases. In the 2016/17 Academic Year students will organize an event in the framework of the Cultures in Dangers Initiative.

Learning Outcomes: 

Participants of the course will acquire a basic knowledge of terms and concepts in project management; familiarize with the phases of project management; learn some of the basic strategies, methods  schemes, tools  used in project management; familiarize with digital applications used in the field of management; develop their skills in proposal writing; gain experience in applying these tools, methods and strategies in practice.

Assessment: 

Regular class attendance is mandatory. Students will receive their grade based on their participation in the planning process and realization of the project in the form of individual and team work. 50% of the grade comes from the evaluation of the course instructors, and 50% will come from the evaluation by the fellow team members (students) based on the 360-degree review concept. The evaluation will take place after the realization of the event with respect to the entire Winter Term.
