Description:

 

group work

Many educators created projects as students or have had their own students do projects for their classes. This course is intended for anyone who wants to refresh their understanding of project-based learning (PBL) and use new technologies and approaches in their teaching. Using a blending learning approach with project-based learning allows teachers to introduce their classes to problem-solving tasks, enhance learners’ critical thinking, and improve students’ research and communication skill, leveraging both face-to-face and online learning options.

If you enjoy learning in a collaborative, virtual environment, consider this highly interactive course. Come learn new instructional approaches and technologies, while developing your own project by course end.

Objectives:
By the end of the course, participants will be able to define what project-based learning (PBL) is and compare its varied forms; explain the history and research behind PBL; identify three core skills developed through PBL; explain what PBL 2.0 is and its key elements, steps, and tools for creating it; develop a lesson that integrates blended learning with project-based learning; and evaluate lesson implementation.
