Project management holds useful insights into how tutors can adapt lessons and student learning to the new process-oriented skills of the modern workplace.
Back in the old days (like the 1990s), kids dreamed of being a doctor or lawyer or astronaut. That was before the World Wide Web upended old career paths and introduced us to the jobs of the future, like computer programming and project management.
Some teachers are taking lessons from project management to apply Project-Based Learning (PBL) to their lesson planning. PBL provides students with “a consistent structure” to frame teamwork objectives and clear goals, and can help students to reflect on their academic progress. What’s more, trying different process-oriented teaching techniques might fit certain students’ learning needs.
It probably won’t hurt to be ahead of the digital jobs curve, either: the U.S. is expected to add 2.1 million project management jobs over the next 10 years. Next time you’re chatting to parents, you might remind them you’re giving their students that extra edge in changing times.
