Research: Our Partners

We work with partners in school districts, higher education, research, and philanthropy.

While PBL research is growing and more experimental studies are underway, the research is emerging and PBL is considered promising. PBLWorks will pursue purposeful partnerships to support and promote research to increase the widespread adoption of high quality PBL.
