Past Event or Opportunity
This opportunity has concluded. This page’s content may be out-of-date.
Join the Consortium for Public Education for two professional development days centered on Project-Based Learning (PBL) instruction!
Teachers who are interested in learning and applying PBL in the classroom will design a project plan that is unique to their content area. A common language will be established through discussion and by engaging with the key elements of PBL. Methods and strategies (such as Human-Centered Design) will be shared and demonstrated so that teachers have a greater understanding of how PBL can be implemented and ways in which to engage students in thoughtful critique and reflection. This training is designed to give teachers the tools and confidence needed to implement PBL into a classroom successfully.
Day #1, scheduled for October 8th, 2019 from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm will cover key PBL elements, classroom culture, driving questions, and learning outcomes.
Day #2, scheduled for October 24th, 2019 from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm will build on the work accomplished on Day #1. Such topics as rubric and assessment development, student research, mini-lessons, and critique/revision techniques will culminate in project plan presentations.
Participants should dress casual and bring laptops or mobile devices. Breakfast will begin at 7:30 am, with programming beginning at 8:00 am. Parking is free, lunch, and ACT 48 credits will also be provided.
