Designing Project-Based Learning
for Online, Hybrid, or In-Person Classes
This is a three day workshop designed to introduce the idea of Project-Based Learning in any environment. Participants that enroll will learn PBL through experience, by participating in mini-PBL units that emphasize student-centered pedagogy. Participants will also learn about integrating Competency-based assessment into PBL projects to ensure that they follow state standards. Finally, participants will partner with each other to collaborate on a PBL unit at their schools.
August 18-20, 2020
The workshop will start on a Friday afternoon (4-8) and go through Saturday & Sunday (9-4)
The first day will be a mini PBL unit that has an Entry Event, milestones, and final product that is shared with a public audience. We will also begin using design thinking to start brainstorming viable PBL ideas.
The second day will offer time to understand each facet of High Quality Project-Based Learning. We will walk step-by-step through the process to ensure that units are engaging, focused on standards, student-centered, and rigorous.
The third day will get into the nitty gritty of hammering out the details of a PBL unit. The final product of this workshop will be a PBL unit that participants will attempt with their students. Participants will establish partnerships to collaborate with each other throughout the design and implementation process.
