Project Management Meetings
The aim of the project team has been to have management meetings every two months. The management team consists of the Project Manager, the GEES Associate Director, the UoP’s Director of E-learning, the HELP CETL’s Senior Learning Technologist, and, since being in post, the Project Coordinator. Other members of staff, such as the GEES Project Coordinator, may sit in where appropriate.
The first official project management meeting took place after finding the bid had been successful, in April ’09. Summer holidays disrupted the next meeting slightly, but it took place in the middle of July, with further meetings taking place in September and the latest in November. Some of the minutes can be found in this Blog, others can be accessed by contacting the Project Manager.
Meetings have been built around different formats, dependent upon the pressing issues- this is due to the short time frame of the project, and the need to progress as quickly as possible. For example, the most recent meeting was centred around the format of the interim report.
The meetings are used to make decisions on ways forward for the future of the project, dealing with issues that have arisen and not been resolved during the previous two months, noting down areas of work that are not directly related to C-change work packages, but are of interest for future work, and sharing information with more senior members of staff (e.g. Director of e-learning, GEES Associate Director) that has not already been shared between the core team members.
