Welcome to the Project Management EVO 2014!



In this page you will find basic information about our EVO and links to contents so you can explore and see. We certainly hope you will want to join us this  jan-feb 2014!





Choosing a new coursebook, redesigning a curriculum, setting up a self-access center, and many other tasks that you need to complete in your school – can all be organised as projects.  Conceptualizing, planning and realizing such projects is a great way to effect positive change in your organization. This session leads participants through the steps of designing and managing smaller and larger-scale projects and is useful for all language program administrators.
