Sustained Support Visits

After PBL 101 and one or more projects, follow-up visits will continue to support your staff with project implementation.

A great way to continue deepening your PBL teaching practice.

Deepen your ability to implement a Gold Standard project by learning how to reflect on and strengthen the essential project design elements and project based teaching practices in a specific project. Sustained Support Sessions are designed to provide ongoing, targeted support for teachers to implement projects more effectively. 

We highly recommend scheduling two full-day or four half-day Sustained Support Visits in the year following the PBL 101.

This helps to ensure the sustainability and momentum of your PBL initiative and ensure that all teachers who have completed PBL 101 continue to develop the skills they need to effectively implement PBL in their classrooms. Research indicates the importance of ongoing support as a feature of successful professional development and transformation in teacher practice.Your workshop will be facilitated by a member of the PBLWorks National Faculty—all seasoned teachers, administrators, and coaches who are PBL experts.

Each service is a half-day (3 hours of workshop time) or full-day (6 hours of workshop time) with a cohort of up to 35 participants. All participants must have completed the PBL 101 Workshop.

Our team is excited to bring you an engaging, high-quality online learning experience.
