Working in projects using MoRPHE (distance learning) Summer 2016
Monday, 11 July 2016 at 09:00 - Monday, 10 October 2016 at 12:00 (BST)
This ten step distance learning 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.
As this is a distance learning course you can work through it at your own pace; but we expect it should take two to three hours to complete in total.
You can register for a hard copy or digital version of the MoRPHE workbook. This contains all the information you need for your study. Both versions require you to complete an online assement when you have worked through the course. You will be expected to have completed the online assessment by 5th December 2016.
Please note, hard-copy versions are only available to those regsitering with a U.K. postal address.
This distance learning course 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 and undertaken the assessment, you will be invited to join an online community of heritage sector project managers to recognise your achievement and further your learning.
