MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES

The goal of this project is to enhance sustainable economic development in rural communities in Georgia through workforce development, retraining, and professional education (lifelong learning opportunities).   The implementation of 12 PLCs in five years is an undertaking by MES and GTU to ensure the achievement of the goal.  This project will support the initial steps in the undertaking through:

  • The development of facilitators who will train faculty in curriculum development and delivery, both in face-to-face and online environments
  • The development and delivery of a continuing education program in Small/Medium Enterprise development and management
  • The adaptation of curriculum from two diplomas for delivery through the PLCs
  • Supporting the evolution of student governance at GTU

 

The following matrix summarizes the outcomes workflow for the term of the project and the institution with the primary responsibility for the completion of the task.

Biophysical and Human Environmental Impacts:
Biophysical impact of the project would be negligible.  If Environmental Planning (waste water management programming was specifically mentioned by GTU as a priority) is selected as one of the diploma programs for development impact then would be positive.  Likewise, the Human Environmental impact, in view of the project’s focus on economic development/poverty reduction through education would be positive.
