Name: Active vocational learning in project management for trainers
Program: Lifelong Learning Programme, Leonardo da Vinci – Partnerships
Project partners are the Faculty of Business, University of Economics in Prague, Department of Management; Slovak consulting company IPA Slovakia; the French Ecole Superieure des Sciences Commerciales d’Angers and the Finnish Laurea University of Applied Sciencesurea Ammattikorkeakoulu. The project coordinator is the Czech company Wisdoma, Ltd.
The project focuses on innovations of education in the area of project management in SMEs and NGOs by training trainers, creating new simulations and other outputs. It reflects unsatisfactory success rates of projects caused among other factors by low knowledge of project management as proved by many studies.
The project aims to improve the quality of education in project management. This will be achieved through training of trainers and creation of new teaching modules that will be individually based on each participant organization’s experiences in the area of project management and satisfying target group’s needs.
Innovativeness of this project consists in choosing active form of education, which is significantly more successful than purely theoretical one. Unlike most of existing project management courses, students will have more possibilities to try out the practical tasks of project management in many simulations, games and activities. Trainers are involved in this project so they can try the activities themselves and then utilize them in their teaching. Acquired knowledge will be transferable to the training in other areas.
