Overall objective

The workshop module Project Management and Evaluation trains students to manage and evaluate projects in public and private organisations. It introduces students to the techniques used in planning, managing and evaluating a process of achieving project goals within given constraints. It facilitates the application of these techniques in practical exercises.

The teaching includes a mix of lectures with interactive discussions, in-class exercise-based group work, and individual student presentations. Throughout the course, students will work towards completing their final portfolio. This includes choosing and presenting a relevant topic for the portfolio and gaining teachers’ approval. There is also the possibility of additional guest lectures and presentations of project management by relevant development practitioners working in NGOs, and the private and public sector.

Recommended academic knowledge: basic or broad knowledge of global and development studies, and elements of the project planning cycle.
