LAHHOB 15S1 Civic Knowledge Project Workshop: The History and... Christian Kronsted Spring 2015
Civic Knowledge Project Workshop: The History and Philosophy of Breakdancing (LAHHOB)

This course will use the history of breakdancing as a lens to look at the larger political history of the United States, using breaking as a case study of how big decisions concretely trickle down into society and have a real impact on communities and cultures. For example, breaking as a culture was a product of the Vietnam War, Nixon's flawed presidency, and the Civil Rights movement; cultural tendencies from all layers of society collided and created what we today know as hiphop and breakdancing. The class will also talk about Aristotle and virtue ethics in relation to breaking philosophy, as well as issues of gender, performance, and even some metaphysics.

TRPMFT 15S1 CANCELED: Project Management for Translators Leah Ruggiero Spring 2015
CANCELED: Project Management for Translators (TRPMFT)

This interactive seminar will survey methodologies and work habits that actively support a positive approach to managing translation/localization projects. We will discuss the immutable triad of Scope, Cost, and Time and then dive in further with an examination of what managing a project really entails: planning, executing, controlling and monitoring, and closing. We will review the technical capabilities that language project managers need in their digital tool belt. We will also consider essential interpersonal and professional skills for a PM, and learn how to follow a fair and impartial model for a course of action when faced with disputes. Finally, projects can sometimes march on blindly, oblivious to the needs of living, social human beings, and strategies (often underused) for humanely managing them will be offered. Role playing and group discussion will complement the lecture presentation. Your reward for active participation in this workshop will be a foundation in project management that can be immediately applied to current and future projects, whether you are working as an independent language professional or within a multilingual corporate environment.

NOTES: Continental breakfast and a hot buffet lunch are served each day. Students who register 5 or fewer business days before the class runs are responsible for emailing the program manager for any pre-assignment. There is no online practicum for this course, but students must complete a post-course assignment to receive credit for the course.

PMENPM 15S1 Negotiation and Dispute Resolution for Project... Mark Werwath, MS, Phd, PMP Spring 2015
Negotiation and Dispute Resolution for Project Managers (Intermediate) (PMENPM)

Instructional level – intermediate

Successful project managers must be able to work with other managers, stakeholders, and vendors as well as their own employees. They must be able to resolve disputes, gain approval for budgets, negotiate contracts, and “sell” to all levels of the organizations. Bringing disparate parties together requires a delicate combination of art, science, and practice. Your ability to be truly prepared for and effective in a negotiation hinges on your ability to respond appropriately to colleagues and team members. In this course you will be involved in a variety of in-class simulations to enhance and improve your skills in preparing for and conducting effective negotiations and dispute resolution. Simulation topics include single-issue bargaining, negative and positive ZOPA, multi-issue bargaining, agents and ethical dilemmas, and dispute resolution.

The techniques taught in this course are based on research in social psychology, decision theory, and game theory. The design of the course reflects the belief that negotiating well is both art and science and that learning by experience is powerful-especially when the experience is clearly related to the situations where you want to apply what you learn. Hence, the negotiation exercises we use are set in managerial situations, and the points of learning are sufficiently core to be applicable to a broad range of negotiations or disputes in the context of project management

Learning objectives:

At the end of this course, the student will:

  • Be a more effective and more confident negotiator
  • Be able to recognize and respond to functional and dysfunctional negotiations and tactics
  • Be able to properly prepare for a negotiation and function well in a team that is embarking on a critical negotiation

Instructional format:

This is an onsite course.

This course is highly interactive. The instructor will provide simulations of negotiation scenarios that are derived from real world two-party and multi-party bargaining and integrative scenarios as well as dispute resolution scenarios. Students will be provided a variety of in-class simulations and will be shown how to prepare for and conduct these negotiations. Class-time will then be allocated for students to negotiate the various scenarios with each other and for a thorough debrief and discussion of the in-class negotiations. 

Other 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 Certificate and Advanced PM Certificate.

Prerequisite(s):

Participants must have at least two years of professional experience. This course is highly interactive. Strong English skills are required. Please contact Klocke1@uchicago.edu if you have questions about which class is best for you.

BPWHOD 15S1 Basic Program Weekend Study Retreat: Homer's... Eva Fernandez, Katia Mitova, James Redfield, Adam Rose Spring 2015
Basic Program Weekend Study Retreat: Homer's Odyssey (BPWHOD)

As you set out for Ithaka hope the voyage is a long one, full of adventure, full of discovery...
—“Ithaka,” C.P. Cavafy

Following on the great success of our recent retreat on the Iliad, we will continue to engage the great foundational epic poet of our culture with a Weekend Study Retreat on Homer’s Odyssey. Perhaps the original “road narrative,” the poem recounts the adven- tures of Odysseus trying for years to make it home after the Trojan War, struggling against the wrath of gods and monsters and also against the consequences of his great thirst for knowledge and his occasional rash decisions, accumulating a vast and costly store of experiences while repeatedly escaping life-threatening situations by dint of craftiness. Of course, the challenges are by no means over once Odysseus lands on his home shore. The Odyssey has captured imaginations for almost three millennia, and inspired countless works in similar or vastly different genres, including Virgil’s Aeneid, Cavafy’s great 20th-century lyric meditation Ithaka, and even the Coen brothers’ film O Brother, Where Art Thou?

The weekend will include talks by James M. Redfield, Edward Olson Distinguished Service Professor of Classics at the University of Chicago, and author of Nature and Culture in the Iliad: The Tragedy of Hector; Basic Program instructors Katia Mitova, Adam Rose, and Eva Fernandez, small-group discussions, and free time to enjoy the resort.
