Project Based Learning
Erin Murphy (my Hacking Project Based Learning coauthor) and I offer various project based learning sessions that can incorporate and/or extend the contents of our book. These sessions can last from one-hour to multiple days, and they can be tailored to meet the needs of the audience.
Here are our more popular options. All can be offered as a keynote/presentation or workshop:
Hacking Project Based Learning
We bring our book to life by walking participants through our 10 hacks, which construct a simple path educators and students can easily follow to achieve success with PBL.
We address the elephants in the room by tackling the main obstacles (“Yes, buts…”) we typically face when implementing project based learning.
Avoiding Project Based Learning Fluff
Based on my blog post – 5 Ways to Avoid Project Based Learning Fluff #HackingPBL – we explore how to design authentic learning experiences that intentionally dispel the myth that PBL isn't real learning.
Projects vs. Project Based Learning
Based on Erin's blog post – 5 Critical Questions to Ask About Your Project #HackingPBL – we explore the various ways in which project based learning is different from (and better than) traditional projects.
Project Based Learning for Administrators
We take a look at ways in which administrators can support PBL in their schools/districts, while gaining buy-in from stakeholders that include teachers, students, and parents.
Here are some tweets, specific to our work with project based learning:
No problem! I teach presentation skills and your slideshow would definitely be an exemplar! Best I’ve seen all conference.
