19Apr(Apr 19)9:0023(Apr 23)15:00ONLINE TRAINING Management of Development ProjectsThis course will help participants to grasp what is meant by Project Management in development projects, in line with the philosophies of the different donor organizations. International cooperation in development project management requires a common understanding of planning, monitoring and evaluation (PM E). Concepts such as "PCM – Project Cycle Management" and "Managing for Development Results" are explored. As a fundamental component of the course we examine the Logical Framework Approach as development instrument. One of the major challenges of Project Management is interdisciplinary teamwork. The course helps participants to become familiar with work in interdisciplinary multicultural groups and the application of Project Management instruments and tools.9:00 - 15:00 (23) Veranstalter: Seminar für Ländliche Entwicklung (SLE) Themen:Sonstiges,WirtschaftFormat:Online-Seminar/Workshop

What does live online training mean?

Our online trainings are not pre-recorded training videos, webinars for large audiences or self-paced e-learning courses. They are virtual live trainings
delivered by our trainers in real-time, focusing on the interaction of a
small group of remote participants. Just like our face-to-face
trainings, these virtual classrooms aim at tailoring the discussions and
learning experiences to the training needs of the participants.

to attend our live online trainings, a reliable high-speed internet
connection and a computer or laptop running Windows or iOS are required
(including audio and video). The Humboldt-Universität of Berlin uses the
videoconferencing platform Zoom (subject to change) for virtual
classrooms as well as digital tools. We strongly
recommend an external headset for better sound quality.

Course Methods

One of the major challenges of Project Management is interdisciplinary
teamwork. The course supports participants to become familiar with
working in interdisciplinary multicultural groups. The training course
fosters learning from experience by giving brief trainer inputs followed
by the practice of the use of relevant tools, interactive exercises,
discussion and reflection.

The virtual classroom sessions with
the trainers and the fellow participants via Zoom (subject to change)
are complemented by group exercises, assignments as well as time for
self-study and reflection.

Target Group

in the field of international cooperation and development. A good
command of the English language is a prerequisite.

Our short intensive courses promote learning through
experience: ‚Learning by doing for impact‘ is the most important aspect of
SLE’s training philosophy. Our participants come from all around the globe:
they include staff from development agencies, national and international NGOs,
public institutions, university students and researchers as well as
professionals from the private sector. This unique mix of different cultural
backgrounds and professions enables a transdisciplinary exchange of experiences
within an intercultural learning environment.
