PROJECT-BASED LEARNING

MAXIMIZE STUDENT ENGAGEMENT THROUGH PROJECTS THAT DRIVE LEARNING

What is Project-Based Learning?

Project-Based Learning is a pedagogy of teaching and learning where students engage with complex questions, often collaboratively, and share their learning with an audience. It’s much more than an activity tacked on to the end of a unit—these projects drive the learning.

Why PBL?

Project-Based Learning provides students endless opportunities for problem solving, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. Students are engaged and motivated because they have choice in and responsibility for their learning. PBL gives students the freedom to use their God-given gifts and abilities to impact their communities in meaningful way.

What people have said?

“Overall, my participation in the PBL residency is a week I will never forget. I not only learned about PBL, but I was able to meet and work with other wonderful Christian educators. I want to say thank you for the work you put into this course, and hope that I can continue to learn more next year. Blessings!”
