Open Enrollment Course Nanomaterials Today: From TVs to Cancer Treatment
01/14/2017 to 03/25/2017

HUAS 54001 | Nanomaterials Today: From TVs to Cancer Treatment

A nanomaterial is any material made up of nanometer-scale pieces—particles 50,000 times smaller than a human hair. These materials are already showing up in new TV screens, clothing, and ground-breaking cancer research. The White House compares the impact of nanomaterials to the steam engine and the internet. In this course we will describe both natural and man-made nanomaterials, such as gecko feet, lotus leaves, solar cells, batteries, electronics, cancer treatments, and more. We will also discuss the surrounding controversies, such as: How feasible are these materials? Are they safe? What are their environmental impacts?

01/14/2017 to 03/18/2017

HUAS 48013 | CANCELED: Plato, Meno, Part 1

“Can you tell me, Socrates—is excellence something that can be taught?” So the not-so-excellent Meno launches one of Plato’s early philosophical dialogues, with Anytus—one of Socrates’ main accusers at his fateful trial in 399 BCE—also attending to the conversation. We’ll read this essential work of Plato in Greek carefully over two quarters. Note: this is the first of a four-quarter sequence to include Aristophanes’ Clouds and Plato’s Apology.

Project Management Introduction to Agile for Project Managers
01/19/2017 to 01/20/2017

PMGT 11201 | Introduction to Agile for Project Managers

Agile software development combines a group of methodologies which are focused on iterative and incremental development. It is based on the premise that rapid delivery of working software greatly increases customer satisfaction. Small cross-functional teams are self-organizing and respond quickly to changing requirements.

The goal of this seminar is to familiarize the student with Agile Project Management methodology and frameworks and how to bridge agile with the PMBOK® project phases. Participants in this seminar will learn to integrate the generic agile process with the project management phases described in PMI’s Body of Knowledge (PMB®).

This course uses “experiential learning.” Every team will participate in a mock agile project. The team will use the project as a vehicle to understand a larger concept. There will be short presentation on the concept and then the project work will begin. Questions throughout the course are encouraged.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn agile project management fundamentals
  • Acquire skills mapping traditional project management to agile
  • Acquire an understanding of how their role as project manager will change using agile project management
  • Learn techniques on how to gain buy-in on the use of agile project management
  • Learning to trust your teams
  • Working with non-agile teams
  • Transitioning your project and software teams to agile

Course delivery format: This is an onsite course.

Sections: This course is offered once per year.

Notes:

Breakfast, networking lunch, and all materials included in tuition.

This course fulfills elective requirements for both the Project Management Strategy and Advanced PM Certificate.

Open Enrollment Course Who Owns the Past?
01/23/2017 to 03/13/2017

HUAS 90001 | Who Owns the Past?

With the looting in the Middle East, destruction of antiquities following the Iraq War, the Arab Spring, and the rise of ISIS/Daesh (among other events), the issue of the ownership and conservation of cultural heritage has become an increasingly hot topic in today's politicized, global environment. Humans have historically attached great religious, cultural, political, and social value to artifacts and locations, usually with significant immediate and historical consequences. This course explores this relationship between past and present, focusing on how various social, political, and economic forces affect the ways in which the past is collected, interpreted, presented, preserved, and destroyed to create meaning in the present.
