Project-based work


You have been requested to lead a project. How do you approach this? Who do you involve in this? What role do you play as a project leader?

You are taking part in a project. What does this imply? How does this fit in with your daily work?

What characterizes projects within higher education, and how do you deal with this?

In this course, you will actively get to work with a project from practice. In just a few days, you will learn how to initiate, define and organize a project. We will delve deeper into the forces surrounding a project and your own role as project leader.


After this course, you will be able to independently initiate and successfully complete projects. You will understand the various roles that a project involves. You will become aware of your own style of leadership (including project leadership) and identify your own strengths and pitfalls. You will have more insight into the force field surrounding a project (including UG projects) and know how you can influence this. You will know what you need to look out for in the comprising of a project team and will become aware of the team dynamic.
