PBL 101 | 3-Day Academy (Grades 6-12)
January 9 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm$399 – $449
Project Based Learning (PBL), is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working through a process of sustained inquiry in response to a complex question, problem, or challenge. This interactive three-day workshop has three basic parts: Project Design, Assessment, and Management. It is designed to teach the basics of PBL through exemplifying the experience of a project, video analysis of best classroom practice, exploration of PBL tools and project libraries, and development of a project with opportunities for critique & revision. By the end of this workshop, participants will have designed a project for use in their own classroom and will have a better understanding of: 1) The difference between PBL and “doing projects” 2) The need to provide students with opportunities to practice 21st century competencies balanced with learning significant content; and 3) How to manage a project in the classroom. The third day of the workshop is purposefully designed to provide participants with time to gain the knowledge and skills to help them plan their project while allowing time for additional research, refinement, gathering of resources, assessment alignment, and peer review before finalizing their high-quality PBL. Ashland graduate credit is available for an additional $249. Lunch is on own. Training dates are 1/9/18, 1/10/18 & 1/19/18. Snow dates are 1/22 & 24/18
