Coursework will cover all of the details included in the four steps to successful project management:

  1. Define (creating a project charter, setting initial objectives, identifying risks and constraints, and more)
  2. Plan (developing a schedule, budget, etc.)
  3. Manage (providing feedback, negotiating for resources and resolving differences)
  4. Review (turning over deliverables, documentation and more)

Using real project ideas, participants apply project management principles to complete a project charter and scope diagram they can then use to begin or continue their real-life project in an efficient, orderly and open manner.

Cost: $350 AASLH Members/ $425 Nonmembers.

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. Weekly online chats provide opportunities for students to interact with the instructor and each other. Students should expect to spend five to seven hours per week on the course.

Who Should Take Part in this Course:

Project Management is valuable training for staff at all levels. And, whether your work involves exhibitions, education and programs, planning, fundraising, collections, historic preservation or the many other tasks staff at history organizations address every day, you will gain new skills, ideas and tools for effectively managing projects.

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.”
