2014 ADE Career Skills Workshop on Project Management

[ A+ ] /[ A- ]

The Association for Documentary Editing will host a one-day Career Skills Workshop on Project Management on Thursday, 24 July 2014, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Seelbach Hilton in Louisville, Kentucky. Registration is now open. The workshop is offered in conjunction with the ADE’s 36th Annual Meeting, which will be held 24–26 July at the same venue.

The 2014 ADE Career Skills Workshop on Project Management is intended for experienced documentary editors who are or aspire to be project directors. Anyone who works in documentary editing will benefit. The workshop will provide intensive training in defining, planning, organizing, and administering editing projects. The immediate aim of the workshop is to instruct project directors in the fundamentals of project management so that they can apply its best practices in their work. Facing myriad responsibilities as well as shifting expectations, documentary editors who serve as project directors need to be as skilled in management as editing. The ultimate goal of the workshop is to improve how editing projects operate.

The instructor of the workshop will be Steven Hoskins, longtime project director of the American Association for State and Local History’s Project Management for History Professionals Program. Hoskins holds a Ph.D. in public history from Middle Tennessee State University and works with historical institutions and organizations around the country as a consultant in project management, strategic planning, community outreach, and other areas.

Participation in the workshop is limited to 20 people, with enrollment on a first-come, first-served basis. Admission costs $100, which is due at the time of registration and is nonrefundable.

Registration for the Career Skills Workshop is separate from registration for the annual meeting. To register for the workshop, please visit the ADE website at http://www.documentaryediting.org/wordpress/?page_id=1617.

The ADE has hosted career skills workshops in conjunction with its annual meeting since 2011. The workshops provide opportunities for experienced documentary editors to receive targeted training sure to enhance their professional abilities. They are funded in part by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), an affiliate of the National Archives.

One thought on “2014 ADE Career Skills Workshop on Project Management

  1. I took a similar seminar that Lynne Siemens taught at NYU and despite the fact that I’ve been doing this for over 25 years, there was a lot to learn and un-learn. I recommend this even to old dogs!
