Hands-on workshop exploring tools, resources and assessment practices to support project-based learning.
You will participate in a quick Project Experience that models a design thinking process. After participating in the experience we will uncover the aspects in the experience that align with powerful Project-Based Learning. You will use these features to map out a plan for project you might design and implement.
During this workshop, participants can expect to:
-Participate in a hands-on, minds on mini-project dive
-Be introduced to tools and resources that support Project-Based Learning
-Consider the role of formative and summative assessment inPBL learning
-Review research that supports the pedagogy of Project-Based Learning
