15-18 July 2012
University of Limerick – Limerick, Ireland
The PMI® Research and Education Conference 2012 is a premier international project management research and education event that brings together scholars, senior practitioners and students of project management and allied disciplines. The event provides an opportunity for attendees to present and discuss new project management research findings and teaching methods through a variety of formats that include paper presentations, symposia and poster sessions. For the first time the 2012 conference will feature two pre-conference workshops:
Doctoral Colloquium, 14 July 2012
Current doctoral students will present their research to peers and a select group of international faculty at the Colloquium where they will receive valuable feedback on their doctoral research. The application deadline closed on 15 April 2012.
Case Study Workshop, 15 July 2012
The full day workshop titled “Leveraging Your Research into Teaching Cases” will be led by instructors from ecch® and is open to faculty and advanced graduate students. The workshop will provide scholars with tools to use their empirical research findings or publicly available information as the basis for writing a teaching case. Topics will include elements of a teaching case and the role and importance of teaching notes. Attendees will be able to work together in an interactive space that will enable them to learn from one another. Preparation materials will be posted prior to the workshop for registered participants to read beforehand.
