Event description
LHL STEM Educator Initiative offers a series of content-based Professional Development led by scholars & created by and for STEM Teachers

About this event

Although projects have been a recognized part of instruction for nearly 100 years (Kirkpatrick, 1918), teachers have too frequently traded student interest and excitement for in-depth learning. You will learn how to gain students' interest and excitement while helping them engage with IN-DEPTH learning.

Project-Based Learning (PBL) is an approach to learning which employs strategies critical for success. PBL exposes students to the real world, opens an inquiry process, boosts communication skills, and interdisciplinary learning.

OUTCOMES:

  1. Distinguish project based learning (PBL) from the short duration and intellectually lightweight activities and projects common to many classrooms; and
  2. Prepare students to reach 21st century educational goals and succeed in the 21st century.
  3. Convert a current project into a PBL.
  4. Learn to set the parameters to help your students learn.
  5. Gain insight from other educators on organizing (classroom space, format, instruction).

STEM ED INITIATIVE

The seminars aim to reconnect STEM educators with the foundations supporting their subject areas and inspire them to model their passion for learning for their students.

Upcoming Sessions

  • February 2, 2022: The Ins & Outs of Robotics: From the Classroom to Coaching and What You Need to Know
  • April 27, 2022: How to Use Design Thinking in Your STEM Classroom

All sessions of the Linda Hall Library STEM Educators professional development series will be delivered in person at the Library, from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. However, due to the ever-changing public health landscape, we reserve the right to adjust the delivery formats accordingly.
