Introduction to PBL: PBL 101 Training

Based on the Buck Institute for Education's model for Gold Standard PBL, the three-day (February 21-23) 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.

Deepening your Understanding: PBL 201 Training

This three day (February 21-23) deeper dive into PBL training builds on the knowledge and skills that educational practitioners learned in the PBL 101 training. This course is focused on advanced practices of PBL implementation including Building Stronger PBL Culture, best practices in Assessing Student Learning, and how to Create Effective Team Roles. Participants will have significant time for hands on work in their own PBL planning and implementation. Pre-requisite: PBL 101

Leading Others in PBL work: PBL Instructional Coaching Workshop

Now available as a three day workshop (February 21-23), 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
