Prerequisite: PBLWorks' PBL 101 Workshop
The PBL 201 Workshop is a three-day onsite workshop that provides experienced PBL practitioners with in-depth instruction on PBLWorks' Gold Standard Project Based Teaching Practices as well as supported project development time. Participants will leave the workshop with the beginnings of a new project as well as a deeper understanding of effective PBL facilitation practices.
Deepening the Quality of Student Work
Focus Teaching Practices: Align to Standards, Scaffold Student Learning, Engage & Coach, Assess Student Learning
How do we ensure that the products we ask students to create are rigorous and align to significant content and skills? What project-embedded strategies can help deepen student thinking and elicit evidence of this thinking? How can we coach students toward ever-increasing levels of intellectual rigor and quality work? In this engaging and interactive workshop, participants will investigate and apply teaching practices and strategies that can help to strengthen the quality of student work in a PBL classroom. They will develop and reflect on a high-quality project, and will plan for project implementation in order to improve student products and enhance learning.
Facilitated by one of PBLWorks' expert National Faculty, each PBL 201 workshop offers a balanced blend of direct instruction, video analysis, hands-on work, resource sharing, and peer collaboration and feedback.
