This Educational Project Management book offers the knowledge and skills one needs to create an educational project from the initial idea and funding to the design and development and dissemination, sustainability and global impact. Project management requires science and art to coexist; science refers to the systematic and precise project management process. Science is combined with the artistic skill to deal with unpredictability as well as human behaviour, talents and abilities. In the current era of global crisis, shared visions and countries’ policies relate to educating future citizens in managing confusion and complexity, even sudden change, in everyday life. Unpredictability is managed with creativity, organisation and flexibility.
At the moment, a major gap in educational authorship exists for Educational Project Management (EPM); there is no book on the subject. In addition, many educational approaches become more and more obsolete; they are replaced by new ones due to rapid world changes and ubiquitous technology. Thus, new modes of thinking and learning are prerequisites to encompass such global perspectives and technological advances.
This book discusses innovative ideas and solutions for designing, developing, evaluating and sustaining educational projects. It is within humanity’s natural competence to learn, adapt and evolve when reaching the abilities’ barriers and entering a new developmental spiral on a lifelong learning journey. Technology is one medium to think, create and act in a more mindful and effective way for sustaining future life and wellbeing. As the tools aid in the externalization of our abilities, learning to adapt and be free to express is now considered situational and theme-based learning, utilizing all shades from the real to the virtual matrix. EPM offers an additional perspective and focus on existing knowledge for the next generation’s learning spaces design and development, so that the learners can initially reach their levels of abilities, and furthermore, unlock their hidden potential. Such implication requires an interdisciplinary background to create the underpinned matrix for the next generation.
Educational Project Management (EPM) provides additional educational solutions to trigger new and undiscovered human abilities to visualize, harness, realize and advance educational communities’ common purposes. It is an everyday tool for educational practitioners towards excellence in teaching and natural learning, removing barriers and creating unlimited possibilities for the evolution of the individual, group and community. This book is part of the global solution in an era experiencing a world crisis, moving beyond known states and barriers by designing and developing progressive and cutting edge immersive educational experiences and projects for an inclusive world for all (Nova).

I highly recommend the book." - Dr. Aneesha Bakharia, The University of Queensland, Australia
“Managing educational projects from cradle-to-grave in a systematic and consistent way may mitigate such complex challenge.
