PBL Events

Learn more about PBL, and connect with a worldwide network of educators. We offer events in different locations throughout the year, delivering professional learning opportunities for individuals and small teams.

What to Expect

Facilitated by our expert National Faculty, our workshops are a blend of direct instruction, video analysis, hands-on work, resource sharing, and peer collaboration and feedback.

Each event offers our Gold Standard PBL 101 Workshop – and may include PBL Leadership Workshops, PBL Coaching Workshop, or advanced PBL 201 sessions.

Who Should Attend

Teachers, school and district leaders, instructional coaches for K-12 schools who are looking to gain the skills and knowledge for successful and sustainable implementation of PBL.

Our workshops are designed for educators who are new to PBL and those who are ready to delve deeper into role-specific and advanced workshops.

Why Enroll

Teachers consistently rate our professional development services as exceptional.

Our workshops are based on our Gold Standard PBL model and provide participants with the skills and knowledge needed to design, assess, and manage a rigorous, relevant, and standards-based project.

This is a great experience that I wish all educators and educational leaders were required to go through. This is how we should be teaching in all classrooms!
