Project managers and administrators have a central, and often undervalued role, to play in ensuring that a project not only runs efficiently but also engages with collaborators ethically. This interactive session will explore the importance of good project management in collaboration and look at some of the ethical challenges collaborations face when dealing with the practicalities of project management, both from within HE institutional systems and from external pressures. We will draw upon a wealth of information from new research examining the processes of project management and insights from a range of participants in collaborative research. In this workshop session we will challenge participants to develop ethical collaborations before offering time to reflect on the challenges and possible solutions from a practical, administrative perspective. We will further seek to understand the role of project administration in aiding this process and the skills required to carry out such complex and sensitive work. We will round up the session by offering some tools and techniques that seek to share the best practice and experiences of a network of project managers working in this field.
Key Learning Points:
- Practical tools to use when developing collaborations
- A deeper understanding of the different needs of project participants and the role of the project manager
- A framework to approach ethical issue from the outset of a collaboration
