Dates and Times:
March 8-May 3, 2021, Asynchronous meetings online.
In project-based learning, learners work to investigate and solve real problems and answer real questions. Learners of all ages want to make an impact and project-based learning can be an engaging way to design meaningful learning experiences for them. In this course, participants will learn the main elements of a project-based learning experience. They will brainstorm ideas for projects, driving questions, and culminating events or products. They will design their own project-based learning experience just in time for the new year to begin. This course is appropriate for teachers of any grade level as well as administrators who design professional learning experiences.
