Embedding project knowledge through reflective practice

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperResearch


    The role of a lecturer in embedding project management knowledge is to appropriately apply the pedagogical process. Two issues need to be addressed in this process: the nature of the knowledge that underpins project management as an academic subject and the appropriate curriculum design.

    Project managers collaborate in a social context and can further embed their knowledge with individual reflection. The exploration of how individuals behave under certain circumstances can illuminate future pathways not previously considered. This collaborative opportunity process is often ignored in practice in the quest to deliver outcomes in the changing and busy project environment.

    A pivotal research study into the practice of project management found project managers need to develop from trained to reflective practitioners an evolution that can be enhanced and accelerated. The objective of a new subject in an Australian project management master's degree aims to create a framework to develop reflective project managers.
