Discover how to create authentic learning experiences that empower and prepare students for the modern world.

All grade levels. All content areas. All technology backgrounds.

Discover how to design, plan, and deliver quality Project Based Learning units. Join us for a dynamic one day in-person event coupled with pre and post on-demand lessons and webinars.

Why PBL? Through PBL units, students are immersed in authentic learning experiences. Teachers can create opportunities for student voice and choice to enhance classroom culture with a sense of student ownership of learning. Extending impact beyond the classroom walls, PBL culminates in a public product that engages the community and drives purpose .

Through this workshop, participants will learn the basics of project based learning, receive hands-on guided practice, and leave with all the resources needed to support every step of the PBL process.

Included in this workshop:
  • Four on-demand pre-work lessons (introduce, brainstorm, and prepare)
  • One in-person full day training event (collaborate, develop, and design)
  • Three follow-up webinars (reflect, regroup, and re-align)
  • Comprehensive set of resources, including sample PBL units, planning templates, and rubrics


     

  • Redefine instruction through engaging Project Based Learning.


    Educators will learn how to:
  • Identify necessary key knowledge, understanding, & success skills
  • Craft a challenging problem/driving question
  • Explore proper project management through digital platforms
  • Provide student voice & choice
  • Design authentic formative and summative assessments
  • Promote reflection
  • Model critique and revision

    Participants will engage in hands-on practice and implementation during our in-person event on February 12. Leading up to the in-person event will be a series of four mini pre-work lessons to be completed on-demand. To ensure continued support, optional post event webinars will occur to dive deeper into reflection, rubrics, and future PBL planning.
  • The PBL Workshop was created to allow educators of ALL content areas and grade levels to participate. Attendees do not need to have prior PBL experience. However, in order to maximize impact at the in-person event, participants should complete the pre-work mini lessons to build a foundational understanding of key PBL elements as well as begin to brainstorm a PBL topic.
