I look forward to an interesting, exciting and adventurous fall semester as we explore the Principles of Project Management together.
Teaching and Research Interests:
Robert Roadcap's teaching philosophy and research begin with a focus on making project management relevant and interesting to my students by providing experiential examples from my background to enhance student learning. He instructs students in the PMGT 510 and PMGT 570 course as a practical application of the project management course learning objectives.
Robert Roadcap strives to engage with students at a level and understanding of the use of project management techniques beyond the classroom and across multiple industry domains by discussing examples from his professional experience. His goal is to mentor students, to interact with the curriculum material as a professional habit, and build an experience that will enhance their career as a project manager.
Robert Roadcap hopes to meet his students in the future at a professional event and hear that they are applying the lessons learned from his classes in their professional careers.
