Concept by: Carolina Castro
This course has been designed for educators who have already received basic training on PBL and want to have a more comprehensive idea on the main areas of PBL teaching practices to achieve a high-quality result.
Participants will be involved in an experienced-based training and will develop relevant projects for their own contexts in teams. Therefore, coaching and time for interaction will be an integral part of the course.
The course will explore the six criteria from the High-Quality Project-Based Learning framework from the Buck Institute for Education (BIE): Intellectual Challenge and Accomplishment, Authenticity, Public Product, Collaboration, Project Management, and Reflection. These six areas are considered the cornerstones of a successful and productive project in education. Getting a deeper grasp of them and exchanging ideas among peers on best practices can help participants acquire skills that will boost the quality of their PBL instruction and their students’ work
By the end of this course, participants will have gained greater insight into PBL instruction and design and how to make their skills as PBL practitioners evolve. They will become more confident in their own PBL facilitation skills, they will learn how to design projects that lead to deeper learning and critical thinking, they will also learn how to better facilitate collaboration among students and help them be more efficient at project management.
