Our challenge as educators is to prepare students for the 21st century and real life. One of the best ways to meet these demands and to reach the rigor of new standards is through interdisciplinary Problem Based Learning strategies.
Problem-Based Learning promotes communication, collaboration, curiosity, organization, and problem solving. It offers educators a chance to shift the work of learning from the educator to the students, where it belongs.
Participants in this PD session will be introduced to the philosophy of Problem-Based Learning and the PBL Project website (www.pblproject.com).
