Introduction to PBL: PBL 101 Training

Available at both February & April Conferences.

Based on the Buck Institute for Education's model for Gold Standard PBL, the three-day PBL 101 Workshop engages participants who teach any and all subjects, PK-12, in learning how to design, assess, and manage a rigorous, relevant, standards-focused project. The workshop models the project process. Facilitated by one of BIE's expert National Faculty, the workshop is a balanced blend of direct instruction, video analysis, hands-on work, resource sharing, and peer collaboration. Participants have substantial time to plan their own project and receive formative feedback from peers and the facilitator. *No pre-requisite to register.


Building a Learner-Centered Classroom: PBL 201 Training

Available at April Conference ONLY.

In this active and participatory learning experience, educators will learn strategies for increasing the engagement and empowerment of all students in the PBL classroom. Experienced PBL educators who attend this workshop will learn to skillfully plan for student choice throughout a project and to use management structures that place student learning at the center. They will reflect on the use of peer feedback as a tool for student empowerment and distributed expertise in the classroom. Workshop attendees will apply the practices they learn to the development of a high-quality standards-aligned project and a plan for learner-centered project implementation in their classrooms.


Leading Others in PBL Work: PBL Instructional Coaching Workshop

Available at both February & April Conferences.

Now available as a three-day workshop, the PBL Coaching Workshop provides instructional coaches and leaders with the knowledge and skills to support teachers in project implementation. The workshop will focus on strategies coaches can use to support and enable high-quality PBL implementation. Participants will review the PBL Teaching Practices through a coaching lens, explore resources and protocols, learn to use a PBL Coaching Cycle, and develop a PBL Coaching Toolkit to use at their school sites. Participants will dive more deeply into two of the Gold Standard Project Based Teaching Practices, and explore additional tools and processes that can be used to deepen project facilitation at their school or district sites. Pre-requisite: PBL 101


PBL Career Pathways 101 Training

Available at April Conference ONLY.

An introductory PBL workshop for interdisciplinary, career-pathway aligned Project Based Learning (e.g., Linked Learning or career academy schools). Work within site-based, grade-level interdisciplinary teams to collaboratively create interdisciplinary projects that target core content as well as career pathway outcomes.
