Stories from the field: Insights from teachers facilitating PBL online
What can we learn from teachers who are facilitating PBL online right now? Join us to hear directly from two teachers about projects they designed and facilitated online, how they facilitated them, and key insights they gained from the experience that can apply to any grade level or content area. This session will include presentations from the two teachers, breakout sessions, and a facilitated Q&A.
