The annual Project-Based Learning Institute prepares educators for implementing PBL by immersing them in an authentic PBL environment. Over the course of four days, educators from across the state work together in small content-area groups to develop a project for their classroom. The Institute offers programming for novice, intermediate, and advanced PBL practitioners and administrators in grades K through 16.
The PBL Institute models project-based learning for teachers just as it should be implemented with students. At the outset of the event, participants receive an entry document and learn the vocabulary of PBL. Educators have the opportunity to see and critique successful projects. In small groups, facilitators guide participants through the PBL process as they create projects for their classrooms. Throughout the event, participants can choose to attend workshops and mini-lessons to increase their PBL skills. Workshops cover topics like differentiation, technology, and integrating state academic standards. Media specialists staff the library to provide additional support through research and idea generation. At the conclusion of the event, participants present their projects to other educators to gain authentic feedback.
