Welcome!

Join us in June to learn about and grow your student-focused engagement activities. The Institute for Transforming University Education will be hosting a virtual Problem Based-Learning workshop from June 27th–July 1st over Zoom. Due to popular demand, we have expanded our online format to a full 5 days with synchronous meetings every day of the week. You’ll work with the same great facilitators that have brought PBL to an international audience — all from the comfort of your own location. Throughout the workshop program, you’ll gain insights into using and adapting PBL to your learning environment. Facilitated workshops run from 9:00AM-12:00PM EDT Monday through Friday. 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.

This workshop is for educators interested in learning about problem-based learning, both in its classic form and recent variations. We welcome faculty, graduate students, and instructional support staff in higher education; those new to problem-based learning (PBL), as well as experienced practitioners.
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.
This is not a passive experience. Your active involvement will enrich the program for all. Participants are expected to participate every day and contribute to our gallery walk as a culminating experience. There will be reading and further enrichment opportunities in addition to the workshop time together. In order to get the most out of the workshop, you should also reserve some time to work on your problem outside of the scheduled sessions.
The workshop is free to UD-affiliated participants. For all non-UD participants the workshop will cost $206. We have reduced rates for graduate students and non-full time educators as well as a limited number of grants available to those with financial need. Please contact pduker@udel.edu for information about reduced rates or a grant application.

Although the workshop is full, please add your name to the waitlist and we will contact you if space becomes available. Do you have any questions or need additional information? Please get in touch
