Introduction to PBL: PBL 101 (for more information, click here) 
The PBL 101 Workshop is our foundational three-day (consecutive) onsite workshop based on our model of Gold Standard PBL. It provides participants with the knowledge and skills needed to design, assess, and manage a rigorous, standardsbased project. It also includes key elements of educational equity in the experience. The workshop models the project process. Facilitated by one of our expert National Faculty, the workshop is a balanced blend of direct instruction, video analysis, handson 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 the facilitator and participants.
*No pre-requisite to register.
