Facilitated by Buck Institute for Education (BIE) Certified Trainers
Design your own PBL to implement with your own class as you engage in an interactive three-day workshop led by a Buck Institute for Education (BIE)-certified workshop facilitator. The PBL 101 workshop has three basic parts: Project Design, Assessment, and Management and is designed to teach the basics of Project Based Learning through exemplifying the experience of a project, video analysis of best classroom practice, exploration of PBL tools and project libraries, and development of a project with opportunities for critique & revision.
Three full days are purposefully designed to provide participants with time to gain the knowledge and skills to help them plan their project while allowing time for additional research, refinement, gathering of resources, assessment alignment, and peer review before finalizing their high-quality PBL. Project Based Learning (PBL), is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working through a process of sustained inquiry in response to a complex question, problem, or challenge.
By the end of this workshop, participants will have designed a "project" for use in their own classroom and will have a better understanding of:
- The difference between PBL and "doing projects"
- The need to provide students with opportunities to practice 21st century competencies (such as
collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity), balanced with learning significant
- How to manage a project in the classroom
All Participants will receive a copy of the BIE PBL 101 Workbook.
