Some More Ideas for Group Projects
Plan, script and produce a 5 or 10 minute video on a topic relevant to this module such as an outline of the Projects in Practice approach or why project management is a useful degree or what makes the UWS MSc PM is valuable or some aspect of the course. The video may involve animation, talking heads, documents and charts. The student team may act as actors, may create a soundtrack, may use props and costumes, and may adopt roles such as director, camera person, sound engineer, etc.

Research and put together a useful and interesting portfolio of ideas of what to visit, experience and look at. This could be, for example, historical sites, architecture, art, museums, beaches, famous ghost locations, pubs crawls, interesting churches, unusual shops, parks, national trust properties, animals / wildlife places, great countryside walks, mountain bike trails, …. If you choose this project you should try to take your own photos and videos and write your own text and ensure that you do not use other people’s media without permission. You might liaise with tourist agencies and other organisations in the creation of this portfolio.
Mini-conference or Webinar
Organise a project management discussion or mini-conference by inviting interesting expert speakers to appear at a scheduled event (possibly via Zoom or Teams) that is publicised so that many other people, such as PM students can attend.
Groups or teams of students plan and organise litter collection and disposal events.
Student groups / teams pick a location, (eg a beach), and a day (e.g. a certain Saturday) for the project event. They may liaise with and / or recruit other volunteer litter pickers and possibly community groups. Student groups / teams may publicise and advertise the litter picking event. They may emphasise the importance of removing litter and cleaning habitats for land and ocean wildlife.
They schedule a day for their team and others to collect litter and use the equipment. Teams should provide guidance and advice to litter pickers about risks, what to do with the litter they collect, separating for recycling, hygiene precautions, distancing from other pickers, etc. They may help to issue equipment for the work. They organise the pickers, explain the area to be attended to and brief their pickers on what is required.
They may contact waste disposal services, environment departments and try to get sponsorship and / or support from local businesses and environmental charities. They may obtain litter-picking equipment (such as grabbers, bin-bags, hoops to keep the bags open, gloves). Teams should find out if some litter (such as plastic) can be recycled. Teams may negotiate payment from Waste Disposal for litter picked.
Each team must decide how they will dispose of the litter they collect. They may co-ordinate the hire of a truck or skip for the required days or agree where the bags of litter will be left.
This project will rely upon good communication. It should take many different stakeholders into account including local authorities, environmental groups, local residents and possibly local media. Groups may make efforts to try to keep litter levels down in the longer term.
This project could involve several teams. The teams might compete with each other. A way to judge the competition could be the volume of litter picked by each team.

The 6 Week Learning Objective
It has been said that one can learn almost anything in 6 weeks if one dedicates enough time and effort to it.

If you choose this option I expect that your group will explain clearly what they will do and why, for example the plan must specify the intended target audience and it is assumed that there will be good, justifiable reasons for the selections that are made. This should be a serious, critical, well-informed and worthwhile quest. It must have a strong Business Case.
Research a wide range of paper aeroplane designs, build and test them to determine the best types in various conditions and carry out a set of scientific trials to see how far they fly. Write these trials up explaining the methodology and findings. Invite other people (outside the group) to join in. Make recommendations of the best designs. Try to develop a new unique, creatively distinctive, paper plane.
The Blue Zone experiment
It is said that people who live in certain locations in the world tend to live longer, more active lives. Research suggests that they have similar lifestyles and behaviours, for example they do not smoke, they avoid processed food, they tend to eat a plant based diet and consume little meat, they stay well hydrated and drink little alcohol, they keep in touch with their community, take an interest in other people and try to do kind deeds every day, they are active for many hours per day, not necessarily hard physical exercise but hours of movement and doing things, they have a strong sense of purpose. In this project the team measure some of their own health and well-being factors* at the start, adopt a Blue Zone lifestyle and remeasure these factors one month later to see and record what differences there are. (* eg: weight, steps per day, resting pulse rate, blood pressure, fitness and strength, agility/flexibility, sleep, happiness and stress indicators, …. I can provide advice on these factors if you like).

Geocaching is described as the world’s largest treasure hunt.
www.geocaching.com It is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use GPS devices (usually mobile phones) and map navigation to seek caches in thousands of given secret / hidden locations marked by coordinates, all over the world. Team members might aim for example to find 100 geocaches each and build a folder of evidence of their journeys and finds using for instance “Strava”. The team would write their experience up at the end and provide advice and suggestions for others who may not have encountered Geocaching.
