Program: Project Based Learning

Dates: 7/31/2017 to 8/4/2017

Project Based Learning (PBL) is a lot more than "doing projects." This five-day workshop will provide an opportunity to explore how projects can become the driving force behind the delivery of your entire curriculum instead of just an end of unit assessment. PBL can help make our classrooms more relevant and rigorous while teaching crucial skills like collaboration, critical thinking, and communication! Participants will have opportunities to experience part of a PBL unit, work to begin designing their own standards-aligned units, and explore how to use Google applications and other free software to manage the process. Teachers who are new to PBL will gain a strong enough foundation to begin integrating projects into their work this year, while experienced teachers will be able to explore new subtleties and take their work to the next level. The PBL Institute will be presented by Heather Buskirk and Maryann Loucks. Heather, classroom teacher and instructional coach, implements PBL in both a traditional classroom and in a fully integrated project based environment. She has received PBL training from the Buck Institute of Education and from the New Technology Foundation. Maryann is a Professional Development Specialist trained in PBL by Buck Institute of Education. Individuals may submit personal checks to HFM BOCES if Distict or BOCES is not paying. Otherwise, Districts or Local BOCES will be billed by HFM BOCES.
