Location: Willis Education Center | 74 W. Williams St., Delaware, OH 43015
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.
This interactive three-day workshop led by a Buck Institute for Education (BIE)-certified workshop facilitator has three basic parts:
1. Project Design
It is designed to teach the basics of PBL 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. 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:
1. The difference between PBL and "doing projects"
2. The need to provide students with opportunities to practice 21st century competencies balanced with learning significant content; and
3. How to manage a project in the classroom
The third day of the workshop is 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.
All participants will receive a copy of the BIE PBL 101 Workbook, Setting the Standard for PBL: A Proven Approach to Rigorous Instruction.
This training will take place at:
Willis Education Center
74 W. Williams St., Delaware, OH 43015
One semester hour of Ashland University graduate credit is available for an additional $249. Lunch is on your own.
