Event Details

Student engagement. Professional development. “Real-world” applications of class content. These are issues facing instructors across STEM, social science, and the humanities. Data shows that goal-oriented project-based learning can foster student motivation and enhance student understanding and competency. The goal of project-based learning is to develop activities and assignments that help move students from “thinking” to “doing”. The primary objective of this approach is that students leave the classroom with skills, experiences, and concrete deliverables that contribute to their professional development – and career prospects.

 

This workshop provides strategies on preparing students for life beyond the classroom through three types of project-based learning: labs, simulations, and case studies. It addresses questions of:

What are the basic attributes (and limitations) of project-based learning design?

How can project-based learning strategies help achieve course goals and objectives?

What are the dos and don’ts, costs and benefits of project-based learning?

 

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to….

  • Identify primary components of project-based learning
  • Compare and contrast labs, simulations, and case studies in the context of goal-oriented skills development and project-based learning   
  • Address the use of project-based learning in “soft skills” development (e.g., communication, negotiation, collaboration, and decision-making)
  • Effectively deploy strategies for designing and implementing project-based learning 

 

Registration for University Center for Teaching and Learning workshops is mandatory. Registering for workshops ensures the distribution of pre-workshop materials and helps maintain the integrity of our attendance records.
