Join us in January 2021 to learn about and grow your student-focused engagement activities. Facilitated workshops run from 9:00AM-12:00PM EST on January 4th, 6th, and 8th. Participants are expected to invest additional time during the week developing personal projects and taking advantage of the coaching sessions offered by the event facilitators.
Who should attend?
This workshop is for educators interested in learning about problem-based learning, both in its classic form and recent variations. We welcome those new to problem-based learning (PBL) as well as experienced practitioners. We welcome faculty, graduate students, and instructional support staff in higher education.
What you can expect?
This workshop will provide an introduction to problem-based learning and model ways that PBL can be used effectively in all disciplines across higher education and in all size classes. We will describe ways to adapt PBL to your teaching situation, and you should leave the workshop with a problem that you can bring into one of your classes.
What's expected of you?
This is not a passive experience. Your active involvement will enrich the program for all. Participants are expected to participate all three days of the event and contribute to our gallery. There will be reading and further enrichment opportunities in addition to the workshop time together. Also allow some time to work on your problem outside of the scheduled workshop times.
Ready to take your classroom learning experiences to the next level? Register today as virtual enrollment is limited to retain an interactive atmosphere.
