Working in projects using MoRPHE -Distance Learning Course October 2015
Saturday, 31 October 2015 from 10:00 to 14:00 (GMT)
This is a distance learning course which you can work through at your own pace; it should take two to three hours to complete. Registration for the course will close on the 31st October. Those registering with a U.K. postal address will be sent a hard-copy MoRPHE workbook with all the information you need for your study 5 working days after this date. Those registering from outside the U.K. will receive the material by email. You will be expected to complete the course by Friday 8th January 2016.
This ten step course will familiarise you with the ‘Management of Research Projects in the Historic Environment - MoRPHE Project Managers Guide’ a free guide to project management published by Historic England.
It covers the essentials you need to know to participate effectively in a project managed using MoRPHE. You will learn:
- the stages in a project, so that you can see how a project proceeds.
- the roles of those involved, so that you can see how your work might contribute;
- the terminology used so that you can communicate effectively about a project with colleagues
- the key documents, so that you will know where to look for information about a project.
Each of the steps in the course includes an instruction to read part of the MoRPHE Guide plus one or more Activities. These are there to help you develop your understanding of the text.
You will gain most from this course if you have a project in mind, that you can refer to as an example while you work through the course. Once you have completed the course you will be invited to join an online community of heritage sector project managers to recognise your achievement and further your learning.
