     Research Project:
    Course Catalog Development

    McKinstry is a design, build, operate and maintain (DBOM) company based in Seattle, WA. Staff training is currently provided through McKinstry University (McKU) but there is no central place to house all of the classes available.
    Currently McKinstry’s staff take courses from a variety of sources, including those offered by the internal Employee Development team, elearnings made available through an LMS and other web libraries, and courses from outside vendors and professional associations. The goal of the project is to centralize and quickly
    communicate details about a variety of development opportunities to all staff.
    The Employee Development team at McKinstry is creating a comprehensive course catalog that will provide greater visibility to staff on their training options. The future course catalog will be organized into colleges, including the College of Professional Development, College of Business, Technical College, and a College of
    Leadership. We’re looking for someone to work on contract, to help us put this catalog together.

    The contractor will be provided with a hierarchy of courses, organized by subject matter, and a template for filling in required data for each course.
    The contractor will research potential courses for inclusion in the catalog that meet the following criteria:
    - Appropriate for McKinstry’s audience
    - Match the desired subject in a way that aligns with the desired competencies
    - Accessible nationwide (either through remote access to a live classroom, self-paced elearning, or live
    deliveries that vary in location)
    - Cost effective

    Although the entire course catalog will have approximately 175 courses, some have already been vetted and only require some additional data gathering. This includes approximately 50 courses from SkillSoft, industry associations, in-house courses, and more.

    The deliverables will include:
    - Phase 1. A list of recommended courses that align with the criteria. This will need to be approved before moving on to Phase 2.
    - Phase 2. A detailed Excel document that provides all of the information needed to share course listings with staff. This document will need to be highly polished and ready for upload into the web-based system that will display the information.

    A successful candidate will:
    - Have experience evaluating both elearning and classroom training
    - Have a critical eye towards quality professional adult education
    - Be a responsive, clear communicator
    - Be detail-oriented

    This project will start on June 30th and must be completed by August 15th.
    The project will be broken into two parts:
    - Phase 1: June 30th – July 18th
    - Phase 2: July 18th – Aug 15th
    The fee will be awarded for successful completion of each phase.

    Please send a cover letter and resume to mcku@mckinstry.com with the subject line: Qualifications for Research Project. Please include a budget that shows your hourly rate and estimated hours for completing the project. Applications are due by Friday, June 13th.
