PBL 101: Introductory PBL Workshop

Our foundational course in Project Based Learning, this three-day workshop is the best way to begin your journey into PBL.

This workshop is 3 consecutive days with a cohort of up to 35 participants.

PBL 101 is the best way to get started with Gold Standard PBL.

As our foundational course in Project Based Learning, PBL 101 is based on tried-and-true strategies for developing learning experiences for educators that lead to sustained changes in practice.

Using our model of Gold Standard Project Based Learning, the workshop itself models the project design process. It provides participants with the knowledge and skills needed to design, assess, and manage a rigorous, standards-based project.

This workshop is also available as PBL 101: Career Pathways for interdisciplinary, career-pathway aligned Project Based Learning.

Watch this quick video – and you'll see why educators rate the PBL 101 Workshop as "exceptional."
