We want to share an important update about our upcoming PBL World conference, planned for June 16-18, 2020. 

With announcements of school closures across the country, the safety concerns expressed by many of you, and our commitment to ensuring the health and well-being of our PBL community, we have decided to transition PBL World 2020 from an in-person event to an online conference! 

Our online conference will bring all the elements of PBLWorks’ professional learning online via digital connection and collaboration tools. Aside from being together in a room, your workshops will be the same exceptional quality as our in-person training. 

About PBL World

PBL World is a one-of-a-kind, multi-day gathering of K-12 teachers, instructional coaches, and school and district leaders who are ready to start the Project Based Learning journey, or advance their practice.

Here, you won’t find the typical long roster of short sessions with various presenters. Instead, you’ll connect with a vibrant community of peers for an immersive 3-day PBL experience. You’ll be doing some deep, focused, real work. You’ll collaborate with your peers and inspire each other to create life-changing  experiences for students. And you’ll most likely find yourself changed in the process.

We are excited to deliver an engaging, high-quality online experience.
