Project-based learning has the potential to lead to deeper learning and increased student engagement, but not all projects achieve the same results. Increasing the authenticity of PBL is one strategy for success. This hands-on workshop for middle and high school educators will focus on designing projects that connect with students’ real-world interests while also meeting important learning goals. Participants will explore practical project design strategies, including:
  • Remodeling traditional units to increase authenticity
  • Connecting with content experts during project planning and implementation
  • Reaching audiences beyond the classroom
  • Inviting feedback from critical friends
  • Scaffolding student-centered learning
  • Adapting PBL for blended and remote learning
