1. Course Details

Summary of Course

This course provides you with a comprehensive introduction to project management in an information technology/information systems context that is also applicable to other contexts in which project management principles apply.

The course considers both theoretical and practical perspectives and will equip you with the necessary skills to be able to manage, or participate in, significant projects. The course, which is built around the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK) from the Project Management Institute, has a firm emphasis on learning by practice, critical analysis of the PMBoK, understanding emerging issues in IS project management, and ethical and responsible management.

You will learn by action, working on a project team that puts into practice the newly acquired knowledge. During this semester you will plan and manage a complex project that will allow you to gain knowledge and skills on technical, behavioural and strategic aspects of project management. You learning effort will be supported by readings, videos, discussions and practical workshops that will explain the critical phases of the project management cycle.

3. Learning and Teaching Activities

Approach to Learning and Teaching in the Course

In this course, students are responsible for their learning. The staff involved in the course will facilitate that learning by providing guidance as to what needs to be studied through the reading list, the ‘self-assessment questions,’ the content of lessons and discussions during the weekly workshop and the assignments.

We will cover a considerable amount of material during the workshops, and you must prepare and study ahead of the workshops. Pre-workshop preparation is vital to your success; therefore, it must start from Week 0. This requirement means that you should read the set readings, work through the preparation material, and attend the workshop each week of the semester.

The workshops will be based on a flipped-mode of learning. That is, you need to prepare ahead and work during the workshops on a set of activities facilitated by your teacher(s). Preparing ahead will allow you to take advantage of the learning activities and to contribute to your and your peers’ learning outcomes. By doing so you will develop not only your skills but also your potential to succeed in your future professional life.

Given the action-based learning nature of this course, it is not possible to learn and succeed without attending and participating in teamwork and class activities.

You are as responsible for your effort in your studies as you would be in a professional project. It is important that you get your study regime organized quickly. You cannot afford to be left behind, keeping up to date is very important as each week builds on the prior weeks. Also, by keeping up you with studies and activities, you will be appropriately prepared to participate in the weekly workshops and to effectively contribute to your team activities and tasks. If you have any problem getting ready for the workshops, please contact your Lecture-in-Charge immediately.

Learning Activities and Teaching Strategies

The learning activities and teaching strategy follow flipped classroom learning principles. This means that you will watch videos, read your textbook and other prescribed material, and listen/read instructions from to your lecturer for homework. You will then use your class-time (workshops) for tackling difficult problems, working in teams/groups, researching, creating and collaborating. The preparation before the workshops is therefore extremely important to your learning-by-doing activities.

For the duration of the semester, you will be working with your team on a single project. Your project team will propose and then plan for the delivery of a key component of a programme that aims to deliver a sustainable bio-fuel industry. While the program is fictitious, the project work you will be doing for it is real (in the sense that you will be working with your team to produce a coherent and fully developed project strategy).

The learning activities do continue after the workshops. You will be working with your team, collectively and as an individual team member, to complete many tasks related to your project assignment.

Finally, a fundamental idea behind our teaching and learning strategy is that project management is learned by doing; that is, by putting into practice techniques and methods in a social and environment. Thanks to your engagement in performing substantial project work and managing yourself and your team, you will learn essential project management skills, methods, and techniques while simultaneously developing your individual and team leadership capabilities.

Seminars/Workshops

This course will not have formal lectures, but it instead takes the form of a series of workshops that will allow you and your team to develop a full plan for a significant project.

During the workshops, the lecturer will only provide a short overview of the topic at hand in the form of “briefs” that will focus on explaining difficult concepts and emerging issues as well as clarifying the tasks you need to perform.

The role of the briefs is to help you to understand the context of the topic as well as work through the problematic points of your project.

The LIC will act as both the key facilitator of the workshops and the Program Manager to whom your team will report. Part of the role of the Program Manager is to mentor you and your team so that you can maximise your learning experience.

The preparation required for each lecture is set out in each week’s study guide. To encourage learned discussions and contributions, you will be briefly examined on the mandatory readings before each workshop.

Please note that each week is likely to have additional readings to supplement the textbook, you will be provided with access to resources for further readings. The additional readings are not examinable but represent a great addition to your knowledge and will improve your outcomes.

The order of topics as provided on your initial schedule is unlikely to change. However, if changes are required, they will be communicated via Moodle.

Class Participation & Discussion

Typically, the first part of the workshop will be facilitated by the LIC and you will participate in a series of activities that will both progress your knowledge and your project. The second part of the workshop will involve further teamwork, such as solution design, investigating, conflict management/resolution, and reporting.

You will receive a workshop plan before each workshop. During your activities, you will receive support from the LIC (and other facilitators), so you can better understand the tasks to be performed, but you will be responsible for performing the tasks.

Attendance at these workshops will be taken; it is vital that all students engage in these activities. It is essential for you to understand that if you cannot attend this course’s weekly workshops, or work on teams, you should not enroll in this course. This requirement is not negotiable. Without teamwork and constant development of the project plan, no project management (or project) is possible.

As you commit to your team and participate, you will develop your communication and management skills, gaining a significant experience and knowledge that is likely to empower you and benefit your future career. Most students report a challenging but highly rewarded learning experience during this course.

Private Study

Your private study is the most crucial component of this course. The readings and all other pre-workshop material will be stated and provided to you via Moodle. Keeping up to date is very important as each week builds on the prior weeks. It is highly recommended that you get your study regime organized quickly.

5. Course Resources

The course website is hosted on Moodle. You will have access to the course website once you have enrolled in the course.

The course website contains the study guides, lecture slides, assignment details, announcements and other information about the course.

Textbook

The text for the course is:

  • Information Technology Project Management (8th edition) by Kathy Schwalbe, published by Course Technology (Cengage)

Workshop Slides and other Material

A PDF document of the slides that will be used in the lecture will be posted on Moodle after each workshop. Other relevant documents and URLs will also be posted to Moodle.

6. Course Evaluation & Development

Each year feedback is sought from students and other stakeholders about the courses offered in the School and continual improvements are made based on this feedback. UNSW’s myExperience survey is one of the ways in which student evaluative feedback is gathered. In this course, we will seek your feedback through ongoing discussion plus end of semester myExperience responses.

Program Learning Goals and Outcomes

The Business School Program Learning Goals reflect what we want all students to BE or HAVE by the time they successfully complete their degree, regardless of their individual majors or specialisations. For example, we want all our graduates to HAVE a high level of business knowledge and a sound awareness of ethical, social, cultural and environmental implications of business. As well, we want all our graduates to BE effective problem-solvers, communicators and team participants.

You can demonstrate your achievement of these goals by the specific outcomes you achieve by the end of your degree (i.e. Program Learning Outcomes—henceforth PLOs). These PLOs articulate what you need to know and be able to do as a result of engaging in learning. They embody the knowledge, skills and capabilities that are identified, mapped, taught, practised and assessed within each Business School program.

All UNSW programs and courses are designed to assess the attainment of program and/or course level learning outcomes, as outlined in the UNSW Assessment Design Procedure. It is therefore important that you become familiar with the Business School PLOs, as they constitute the framework which informs and shapes the course components and assessments of the courses within your program of study.

Academic Integrity and Plagiarism

Academic Integrity is honest and responsible scholarship. This form of ethical scholarship is highly valued at UNSW. Terms like Academic Integrity, misconduct, referencing, conventions, plagiarism, academic practices, citations and evidence based learning are all considered basic concepts that successful university students understand. Learning how to communicate original ideas, refer sources, work independently, and report results accurately and honestly are skills that you will be able to carry beyond your studies.

The definition of academic misconduct is broad. It covers practices such as cheating, copying and using another person’s work without appropriate acknowledgement. Incidents of academic misconduct may have serious consequences for students.

Plagiarism

UNSW regards plagiarism as a form of academic misconduct. UNSW has very strict rules regarding plagiarism. Plagiarism at UNSW is using the words or ideas of others and passing them off as your own. All Schools in the Business School have a Student Ethics Officer who will investigate incidents of plagiarism and may result in a student’s name being placed on the Plagiarism and Student Misconduct Registers.

Below are examples of plagiarism including self-plagiarism:

Copying: Using the same or very similar words to the original text or idea without acknowledging the source or using quotation marks. This includes copying materials, ideas or concepts from a book, article, report or other written document, presentation, composition, artwork, design, drawing, circuitry, computer program or software, website, internet, other electronic resource, or another person's assignment, without appropriate acknowledgement of authorship.

Inappropriate Paraphrasing: Changing a few words and phrases while mostly retaining the original structure and/or progression of ideas of the original, and information without acknowledgement. This also applies in presentations where someone paraphrases another’s ideas or words without credit and to piecing together quotes and paraphrases into a new whole, without appropriate referencing.

Collusion: Presenting work as independent work when it has been produced in whole or part in collusion with other people. Collusion includes:

  • Students providing their work to another student before the due date, or for the purpose of them plagiarising at any time
  • Paying another person to perform an academic task and passing it off as your own
  • Stealing or acquiring another person’s academic work and copying it
  • Offering to complete another person’s work or seeking payment for completing academic work

Collusion should not be confused with academic collaboration (i.e., shared contribution towards a group task).

Inappropriate Citation: Citing sources which have not been read, without acknowledging the 'secondary' source from which knowledge of them has been obtained.

Self-Plagiarism: ‘Self-plagiarism’ occurs where an author republishes their own previously written work and presents it as new findings without referencing the earlier work, either in its entirety or partially. Self-plagiarism is also referred to as 'recycling', 'duplication', or 'multiple submissions of research findings' without disclosure. In the student context, self-plagiarism includes re-using parts of, or all of, a body of work that has already been submitted for assessment without proper citation.

To see if you understand plagiarism, do this short quiz: https://student.unsw.edu.au/plagiarism-quiz

Cheating

The University also regards cheating as a form of academic misconduct. Cheating is knowingly submitting the work of others as their own and includes contract cheating (work produced by an external agent or third party that is submitted under the pretences of being a student’s original piece of work). Cheating is not acceptable at UNSW.

If you need to revise or clarify any terms associated with academic integrity you should explore the 'Working with Academic Integrity' self-paced lessons available at: https://student.unsw.edu.au/aim.

For UNSW policies, penalties, and information to help you avoid plagiarism see: https://student.unsw.edu.au/plagiarism as well as the guidelines in the online ELISE tutorials for all new UNSW students: http://subjectguides.library.unsw.edu.au/elise. For information on student conduct see: https://student.unsw.edu.au/conduct.

For information on how to acknowledge your sources and reference correctly, see: https://student.unsw.edu.au/referencing. If you are unsure what referencing style to use in this course, you should ask the lecturer in charge.

Student Responsibilities and Conduct

Students are expected to be familiar with and adhere to university policies in relation to class attendance and general conduct and behaviour, including maintaining a safe, respectful environment; and to understand their obligations in relation to workload, assessment and keeping informed.

Information and policies on these topics can be found on the 'Managing your Program' website

Workload

It is expected that you will spend at least nine to ten hours per week studying for a course except for Summer Term courses which have a minimum weekly workload of eighteen to twenty hours. This time should be made up of reading, research, working on exercises and problems, online activities and attending classes. In periods where you need to complete assignments or prepare for examinations, the workload may be greater. Over-commitment has been a cause of failure for many students. You should take the required workload into account when planning how to balance study with employment and other activities.

We strongly encourage you to connect with your Moodle course websites in the first week of semester. Local and international research indicates that students who engage early and often with their course website are more likely to pass their course.

View more information on expected workload

Attendance

Your regular and punctual attendance at lectures and seminars or in online learning activities is expected in this course. The Business School reserves the right to refuse final assessment to those students who attend less than 80% of scheduled classes where attendance and participation is required as part of the learning process (e.g., tutorials, flipped classroom sessions, seminars, labs, etc.).

View more information on attendance

General Conduct and Behaviour

You are expected to conduct yourself with consideration and respect for the needs of your fellow students and teaching staff. Conduct which unduly disrupts or interferes with a class, such as ringing or talking on mobile phones, is not acceptable and students may be asked to leave the class.

View more information on student conduct

Health and Safety

UNSW Policy requires each person to work safely and responsibly, in order to avoid personal injury and to protect the safety of others.

View more information on Health and Safety

Keeping Informed

You should take note of all announcements made in lectures, tutorials or on the course web site. From time to time, the University will send important announcements to your university e-mail address without providing you with a paper copy. You will be deemed to have received this information. It is also your responsibility to keep the University informed of all changes to your contact details.

Special Consideration

You must submit all assignments and attend all examinations scheduled for your course. You can apply for special consideration when illness or other circumstances beyond your control, interfere with your performance in a specific assessment task or tasks. Special Consideration is primarily intended to provide you with an extra opportunity to demonstrate the level of performance of which you are capable.

General information on special consideration for undergraduate and postgraduate courses can be found in the Assessment Implementation Procedure and the Current Students page.

Please note the following:

  1. Applications will not be accepted by teaching staff. The lecturer-in-charge will be automatically notified when you lodge an online application for special consideration
  2. Decisions and recommendations are only made by lecturers-in-charge (or by the Faculty Panel in the case of final exam special considerations), not by tutors
  3. Applying for special consideration does not automatically mean that you will be granted a supplementary exam or other concession
  4. Special consideration requests do not allow lecturers-in-charge to award students additional marks

Business School Protocol on requests for Special Consideration

The lecturer-in-charge will need to be satisfied on each of the following before supporting a request for special consideration:

  1. Does the medical certificate contain all relevant information? For a medical certificate to be accepted, the degree of illness and its impact on the student must be stated by the medical practitioner (severe, moderate, mild). A certificate without this will not be valid. Students should also note that only medical certificates issued after physically visiting a registered medical practitioner will be accepted. Medical certificates submitted for Special Consideration should always be requested from a registered medical practitioner that you have seen at a medical practice. Certificates obtained online or via social media may be fraudulent and if relied upon could result in a breach of the UNSW Student Code.
  2. Has the student performed satisfactorily in the other assessment items? To understand what Satisfactory Performance means in this course, please refer to the 'Formal Requirements' section in Part A of your Course Outline

Special Consideration and the Final Exam in undergraduate and postgraduate courses

Applications for special consideration in relation to the final exam are considered by a Business School Faculty panel to which lecturers-in-charge provide their recommendations for each request. If the Faculty panel grants a special consideration request, this will entitle the student to sit a supplementary examination. No other form of consideration will be granted. The following procedures will apply:

  1. Supplementary exams will be scheduled centrally and will be held approximately two weeks after the formal examination period.

    Supplementary exams for Semester 1, 2018 will be held during the period 14 - 21 July, 2018. Students wishing to sit a supplementary exam will need to be available during this period.

    The date for all Business School supplementary exams for Summer Term 2017/2018 is Wednesday, 21 February, 2018. If a student lodges a special consideration for the final exam, they are stating they will be available on this date. Supplementary exams will not be held at any other time.

  2. Where a student is granted a supplementary examination as a result of a request for special consideration, the student’s original exam (if completed) will be ignored and only the mark achieved in the supplementary examination will count towards the final grade. Absence from a supplementary exam without prior notification does not entitle the student to have the original exam paper marked, and may result in a zero mark for the final exam.

The Supplementary Exam Protocol for Business School students is available at: http://www.business.unsw.edu.au/suppexamprotocol

For special consideration for assessments other than the final exam refer to the ‘Assessment Section’ in your course outline.

Protocol for Viewing Final Exam Scripts

The UNSW Business School has set a protocol under which students may view their final exam script. Please check the protocol here.

Given individual schools within the Faculty may set up a local process for viewing final exam scripts, it is important that you check with your School whether they have any additional information on this process. Please note that this information might also be included in your course outline.
