More About PBL...

The PBL 101 Workshop is BIE’s foundational three-day (consecutive, 7.0 hours per day, including lunch) onsite workshop. Based on BIE's model for Gold Standard PBL, the workshop provides participants with the skills and knowledge needed to design, assess, and manage a rigorous, relevant, and standards-based 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 and feedback. Participants are actively engaged in project design, with the expectation that every teacher or teaching team will generate a project plan that receives formative feedback from both participants and BIE National Faculty.

What teachers from Lakeville Area Pubic Schools have to say about attending PBL...

“It allowed me to strengthen my idea of what project based learning is. It gave us ample work time to actually create a project, get feedback, troubleshoot potential problems we'd face and feel confident to teach the lesson after leaving the training.”

“This class was a very innovative lesson structure that I can use in my classroom today! I like that I will actually USE this in my classroom!!!”

“They (my colleagues) should take the course --- it is well worth the time.”

“This is a great training to help you learn the process of creating a PBL. You also have the chance to create one and get valuable feedback."
