16 Create multiple entry points for students Some potential students simply are not ready to tackle the full PSM program Time / financial / work / family demands Been away from a classroom for some time Transitioning military Short Course Course (3 credits) Graduate Certificate Full PSM degree

17 Can we capture students earlier? Traditional and typical pathway Undergraduate degree PSM? Do we potentially lose students between undergraduate and graduate?

18 Accelerated 4+1 Program? Roadblocks and Challenges on the way: New idea for College. Courses can t be counted for both undergraduate AND graduate credit. Will students be capable? Will this weaken the PSM? What happens if they don t stay on schedule?

19 KU PSM EA Accelerated 4+1 Program Undergraduate degree PSM Summer Student admitted to 4+1 pathway as junior (intensive advising) Takes 9 credits of PSM courses as senior (for undergrad credit) Applies to/accepted to PSM program as senior Completes PSM coursework summer and 5 th year

20 Accelerated 4+1 PSM Program? Roadblocks and Challenges: New idea for College. (Education. And a supportive dean) Courses can t be counted for both undergraduate AND graduate credit. (Apply to track and to PSM) Will students be capable? (Minimum GPA) Will this weaken the PSM? (Same number of PSM courses but three (9 credits) taken as undergrad) What happens if they don t stay on schedule? (Multiple checkpoints plus intensive/intrusive advising)

24 Professional skills courses Project Management Entrepreneurship Acct/Finance for Scientists Org. Communication Professional Skills Courses Original suite of Professional Skills courses biased toward private sector But a number of our students are or will pursue environmental careers in government or the non profit sector

25 Professional skills courses: Two tracks Private sector track PMGT 833: Project Management ENTR 701: Entrepreneurship ACCT 708: Acct/Finance for Scientists COMS 811: Org. Communication Public sector track PUAD 607: Project Management PUAD 845: Public Management PUAD 837: Budgeting/Finance COMS 811: Org. Communication

26 Professional Skills For All Scientists

27 A recent survey of Kansas City business leaders: How important is it to your organization to train technical experts and scientists to be managers?

28 Strong push from Kansas City Metro entities Companies: Bioscience, environmental labs, biotech, animal health, pharmaceuticals, clinical testing, etc. Government: Environmental labs, forensic labs, FDA, EPA, KDHE, USGS. Nonprofits: MARC, Green Business Network, others. Regardless of degree or field, students will need professional skills to maximize their career opportunities and advance professionally.

29 Increasingly part of the curriculum Professional Science Masters: Core/Professional Skills Courses (12 credits) Project Management, Entrepreneurship, Applied Organizational Communications, Accounting and Finance for the Professional Science required courses (18 credit hours) Science electives: (minimum 6 credit hour) Capstone/Internship (3 credit hours) Bachelor of Applied Science in Biotechnology General Science Requirements (43 45 hours min.) Biotechnology Requirements (31 credit hours) Biotechnology Elective Requirements (6 hours) B.A.S. Core Curriculum (9 hours) (Communications, statistics, project management)

30 Additional options: MBA (Working Professional) MS/ME in Project Management/Engineering Management But what about the science professional who doesn t want or need another graduate degree? Do off the shelf business and other courses fit the needs of the Scientist Manager?

31 Our poster child for the program Adam 33 years old, married, three kids. PhD in chemistry, plus postdoc. 5 years at pharmaceutical lab. Beginning to supervise other scientists/techs. Working with sales, upper management, other parts of the company No formal training skills in management.

32 What if they already have a graduate degree? Project Management Entrepreneurship Acct/Finance for Scientists Org. Communication Professional Skills Courses Env. Impact Assessment Env. Reg. & Policy Water Quality Soils Required Science Courses Elective 1 Elective 2 Elective 3 Elective Science Courses Capstone Capstone

33 What if they already have a graduate degree? Project Management Entrepreneurship Acct/Finance for Scientists Org. Communication Professional Skills Courses Is this the ideal suite of skills and courses that a Science Manager needs? What are we missing?

34 January 2015 Science Manager Curriculum Development Workshop attendees / 3 groups Facilitated process: If you re a science manager What skills did you need to acquire? What or knowledge do you wish you had? How do you use these skills in your work? If you re in HR or executive level What competencies do you expect from a graduate? From a manager? What competencies do you teach on the job?

35 KU Science Manager Program Six classes, or modules: Project Management Organizational Management Organizational Communication Human Resources Management Financial Management Law, Ethics, and Intellectual Property

36 KU Science Manager Program Drawing on multiple programs at KU Edwards Project Management (Project Mgmt. Program) Organizational Management (Public Admin. Program) Organizational Communication (Comms. Dept.) Human Resources Management (Business School) Financial Management (Engineering Mgmt. Program) Law, Ethics, and Intellectual Property (External)

37 Science Manager Program: Messages from industry Maximum flexibility and accessibility Able to be completed in one year or less. Online as well as on campus options. Academic credit or CE credit. Competency based approach = Custom built from the start: Not from off the shelf courses.

38 Credit: Let the student decide! Continuing Education: 3.2 CEUs for each completed course module 19.2 CEUs for the completion of all six modules Certificate of Completion from the KU Cont. Ed. Academic credit: In progress! (Fall 2016) Graduate Certificate in Science Management 12 credits (6 2 credit hours each)

39 On campus Science Manager classes 8 week sessions 2X/week: Mondays and Thursdays 2 hours/class: 4 6 PM classroom contact hours Equivalent of 2 credit hours

40 Online Science Manager classes Starting early 2016 Same content & instructors as on campus courses 8 week duration Different subject than on campus course in the same 8 week term: Ex: Online: Financial Management On campus: Organizational Communication

41 Maximum flexibility and accessibility Modules can be taken in any order. On campus or online Mix and match! Take just one module.or two or three Complete all six to receive a Certified Science Manager designation.

42 Start of a national trend? Keck Institute Certificate in Bioscience Management SUNY Binghamton Professional Science Management Certificate Wake Forest University Certificate in Science Management Oregon State Certificate in Management for Science Professionals SUNY Albany Professional Science Management Certificate SUNY Brockport Professional Science Administration Certificate University of Kansas Science Manager Program (Certificate)

43 Stackable Certificates to create a PSM? Graduate Certificate in Science Management Professional Skills Courses Env. Impact Assessment Env. Reg. & Policy Water Graduate Quality Certificate in Environmental Assessment Elective 1 Soils Elective 2 Elective 3 Required Science Courses Elective Science Courses Capstone Capstone

44 Creating new ways of learning

45 Some advancing areas: Online courses: Requested by oncampus students as well Travel for work. Time challenges Online by Summer 2016: Graduate Certificate in Environmental Assessment Graduate Certificate in Science Management

46 Some advancing areas: Competency based Education (CBE) Implementation within existing university structures Not a full WGU type CBE approach Shifting four PSM EA core courses to CBE. Facilitates course and degree level assessment. Built into Science Manager Program at start. (Best opportunity for full CBE approach ultimately)

47 Crowd sourcing competencies: EVRN 616: Environmental Impact Assessment Convened a panel: Environmental Scientist, Nonprofit (formerly with industry) Environmental Scientist, Major Environmental Company Former private sector scientist, now university lecturer Independent consultant, past EIA lecturer EPA (federal government), environmental lawyer PSM Program Director (me)

48 Crowd sourcing competencies: EVRN 616: Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) What does an environmental scientist need to know about EIA? What should an environmental scientist be able to do? Can we identify key/critical competencies? How do we assess competencies? 10 Pillars of EIA (Fundamentals elements that all EVRN 616 courses should have). 10 Pillars (Competencies) Curriculum Student Assessment Course/Degree Assessment

49 Beyond the PSM: Create new pathways for students Access ramps course, certificate, degree Create customized pathways Industry vs government Create spin offs Science Manager Program Create new experiences Internships and Capstones Create new ways of learning Online and competency based education
