Full course description
Did you miss UMD’s 2020 VIRTUAL Project Management Symposium that was held virtually on May 7-8, 2020? You still have the opportunity to experience all the presentations through the session recordings. Don’t miss 4 keynote speakers and 53 individual sessions on trending topics, best practices, lessons learned and case studies all centered around project management. It’s a great source of innovative and new information plus plenty of insights you can actually implement!
Each year, the UMD Project Management Center for Excellence holds a two-day Project Management Symposium on UMD’s College Park campus. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was delivered virtually instead of in-person. Sessions were delivered live and attendees could participant in 59 different sessions over the two days. With 5 concurrent tracks going on at the same time, participants had to choose which sessions to attend live. Since the event was delivered virtually using WebEx, UMD was able to record the live sessions. Anyone who attended the live event is able to review all the sessions they missed through the recordings.
This course provides the opportunity for anyone who missed the live event to experience all the presentations through the session recordings.
Each session recording is approximately 45 minutes in length and there are 57 recorded sessions (4 featured speakers and 53 sessions). If you watch all of the recorded sessions, it will take 42 hours and 45 minutes to complete.
