LC Module: Project Planning - Assessment and Accomplishment

“Compared to traditional instructional methods, students engaged in small-group learning achieve higher grades, retain information longer, and have reduced dropout rates, improved communication and collaboration skills, and a better understanding of professional environments (Johnson, Johnson, & Stanne, 2000; Springer, Stanne, & Donovan, 1997; Terenzini, Cabrera, Colbeck, Parente, & Bjorklund, 2001; cited in Oakley, Felder, Brent, & Elhajj, 2004)." (Vega, Vanessa 12,03,2012).
“Many other research studies show similar effects. In general, PBL research shows a slightly positive effect on achievement scores with much larger positive gains on indicators such as: critical thinking and problem solving skills, abilities related to accessing, analyzing, organizing, and communicating information, student attendance patterns and disciplinary behaviors.” (Glassgow, 1997; Jones, Rasmussen & Moffitt, 1997).” (Haney, Dr. Jodi J. 2005).

PG011-M. Project Planning Assessment Meeting Three – Contributing Factors Timed Talk Activity Sheet

PG011-S3 – Contributing Factors Timed Talk Template – As directed, after completion of project, Instructor and the Project Facilitator will lead team members, individually with a group project partner or team, to develop a “Timed Talk” to share the most successful and most challenging project outcomes and the contributing factors. In project management, many factors can lead to challenges or success. There will be varying opinions as to the root causes of various successful or challenging outcomes. These factors can be effectively portrayed using a visual tool, such as a fishbone diagram. A fishbone diagram can show the major cause and effect of various decisions and activities within the project.
