Please join us for two professional development days centered on 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 over the course of our two-day training. A common language will be established through discussion and engagement 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 in practice, as well as ways to engage students in thoughtful brainstorming, 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 March 18th, 2020 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm will cover key PBL design elements, classroom culture, and initial project brainstorming
Day #2, scheduled for March 25th, 2020 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm will build on the work accomplished on Day #1. Topics include rubric and assessment development, student research, mini-lessons, critique/revision strategies, and project planning time. Day #2 concludes with project presentations to the training cohort.
Participants should dress casual and bring laptops or mobile devices. Breakfast will begin at 8:30 am, with programming beginning at 9:00 am. Parking is free, with breakfast, lunch, and ACT 48 credits provided.
