6. Why do I need to register?
7. How can I make use of the articles?
Apart from individual use, some project management groups have used these articles to stimulate discussion at Professional Development days or other meetings. We explain how to use the articles in this way under the "Design PD Sessions Using Articles from Our Site" button. We have also started to prepare a Learning Toolkit for each article that will help you facilitate a 45-minute discussion during a professional development seminar, or in a classroom setting.
8. How can I provide group feedback?
If a Learning Toolkit is available, the how-to document gives instructions on how to provide group feedback. Where a Learning Toolkit is not yet available, we still encourage group feedback especially after you have used our articles at a chapter meeting or education session. To do this, collect comments from the meeting and then register on our site with a username for your chapter. Use this username to record feedback about our articles. Please mention in your comments where your chapter is located.
9. How can I get the published journal articles?
If a Learning Toolkit is available, the facilitation-notes document explains how you can
access the published journal article. Otherwise, email email@example.com with the name of the article and we will tell you how to get it.
