Web Project Management for Educational Environments at edUi 2010

Visit Charlottesville, Virginia, on November 8-9, 2010, for the edUi 2010 Conference where you will meet and learn along with web professionals working in education.

Jody Condit Fagan and Jennifer A. Keach will be presenting the following hands-on session:

Web Project Management for Educational Environments
Presentation Track: Web 101 – Day 2, 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
Formal project management can be intimidating if you only manage projects occasionally—but it offers effective tools that are often easy to implement. We will share the “why” and “how” of identifying project sponsors, drafting project overviews, developing project specifications, and documenting work breakdowns. Learn how to keep projects on time, on budget, and within scope. We’ll have a particular focus on managing web-related projects in educational and non-profit environments.
