Guest lecturing

ECU values the industry experience that our alumni can bring through guest lecturing. If you would like to volunteer to guest lecture, please look at the opportunities below and see if any fit with your area of expertise. If you see something suitable please contact the Alumni Relations team.


Promotional Marketing

We welcome any contributors that have practical experience in advertising, promoting products/services, sponsorship or engaging with media. If you have a background or flair for promotional marketing techniques and would love to pass on your knowledge to a team of enthusiastic students, this would be much appreciated.

Dates and location

  • Any Thursday from 2 August to 1 November between 5.30pm - 8.30pm, Joondalup Campus

Retail Marketing (Undergraduate level)

We would welcome any guest lecturers who have practical experience in managing or owning their own retail business where they could discuss the challenges retailers are facing in today’s retail environment. Particularly of interest would be sharing key learnings regarding managing the financial aspect of a retail business.

Dates and location

  • Any Thursday from 23 August to 20 September, 10.30am - 12.30pm (any duration of time during this allocated seminar period), Joondalup Campus

Starting up a Project (Undergraduate level)

This is the first unit in which project management undergraduate students begin looking in detail at choosing the right project, and then covering the basic steps necessary to get it off the ground. Some students will have been exposed to projects at work, but many have not.

We are looking for an experienced project manager to talk to undergraduate students about a career in project management, how to find a job/placement in project management, and what a typical day looks like in a project.

Dates and location

  • Tuesday 2 October, 9 October or 16 October, 12.30pm, Joondalup Campus
  • Any Tuesday 12.30pm to 1.30pm Semester 2, 2018, Joondalup Campus

Managing Project Scope and Stakeholders (Postgraduate level)

This is the first unit in which project management post-graduate students begin looking in detail at choosing the right project, and then looking in some detail at important issues such as scope, stakeholders, communications and governance. Many students are international, and most have not been exposed to projects before.

They are a very enthusiastic group, and would love to hear from project managers who can relate their own experiences to the students, or anyone who has worked with projects over the past few years and who can tell the students how they got into the role, and where they see their own career path going.

Dates and location

  • Wednesday 3 October, 10 October or 17 October, 6.30pm to 7.30pm, Joondalup Campus

There is an option to present this via video conferencing using web-based software rather than coming into the campus, so the presenter could be anywhere in Australia.


Applied Project Management (Undergraduate level)

This is one of the final units that project management undergraduate students take. They attempt to manage a desk based case study which has many twists and turns, and they have to put all of their previous learning to good use in solving the case study, and writing all the project documents.

We try and replicate the workplace pressures of Board Meetings, grumpy clients and frequent changes of scope and time. We would love to have some of the students reassured that the pressures they are under when dealing with the case study are representative of the real workplace, and so anyone who has managed or supervised practical projects would be most welcome as a guest speaker.

Dates and location

  • Friday 12.30pm (Any Friday 17 August until 5 Oct – excluding mid-semester break 28 September), Joondalup Campus
  • Friday 24 August, 12.30pm to 2.30pm or Friday 21 September, 12.30pm to 2.30pm, Joondalup Campus

There is an option to present this via video conferencing using web-based software rather than coming into the campus, so the presenter could be anywhere in Australia.


Program Management (Postgraduate level)

We are looking for an experienced program manager to talk to postgraduate students about the role of a program manager, and how it differs from the role of a project manager. Experience working on complex projects/programs would be useful.

Dates and location

  • Wednesday 1.30pm and/or Wednesday 5.30pm, Semester 2, 2018, Joondalup Campus

There is an option to present this via video conferencing using web-based software rather than coming into the campus, so the presenter could be anywhere in Australia.
